i agree here - my thought would be that you 
need (4*10*10){resistive load of the four 
filaments} + (4*tube power rating)

my understnding is that since the filament 
provides the electrons by thermionic emission 
then the power that is being drawn from the 
tubes mostly comes from the plate, the 
accelerating voltage is applied to the plate 
and the control voltage to the screen. So inb 
this case you need more than just the apparent 
power for the resistive load of the fillament
