Oh boy,

one has to read the description of two-weapon fighting very carefully. Am I right with the following:

Assume a character with two-weapon fighting (melee) and ambidextrous. Do I understand it right that the character can do make as a Half Action (!) either a Standard, Swift or Lightning Attack with both (!) melee weapons?

Which mean he can make two attacks with

+ 0 to WS for a Standard Attack, since -10 from TWF & Ambidex. cancels with +10 for a Standard Attack

-10 to WS for a Swift Attack

-20 to WS for a Lightning Attack, since the -10 for a Lightning Attack is in addition to the -10 for fighting with two weapons?

Yes. That's why TWF power field weapon wielders are good at killing hordes.

You are correct, though iirc people have made some house rules to the effect that attacking with one hand takes one half action. Meaning that attacking with both hands and both weapons will take a character's entire action rather than just one half action as the rules claim. Definitely more reasonable than the current rules.
