I looked in the armor saves section of the BRB and didn't see anything mentioning this there. What happens if you have an armor save of 0+? Can it go that low or is 1+ the minimum?
Yes it can.
Nothing spectacular happens. You treat it the same as a 1+ save. You always fail on a 1, it just helps more against high strength attacks.
That's the way we play it.
So a 0+ save becomes 1+ for strength 4, 2+ for strength 5 etc.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
Yes, some dwarf characters have -2+ armor saves....and then they get to reroll if they fail....
Heh great just another reason for me to hate my opponents chaos knights in cc..as that means they can have a 0+ with parry.
Dwarf characters can never go below a 1+ save. Also mounted models cannot use handweapon/shield for a 'parry bonus' +1 save.
Other characters from other armies can get a save of 0+ or even less. They still fail armour saves on the roll of a 1, but it means they are more likely to survive high strength hits (due to the save modifiers)
As Deceiver said, that is only for infantry models.as that means they can have a 0+ with parry.
If you're looking for a way to beat this, nearly every army has some magic weapon that ignores armor in it. Also, most warmachines negate all armor, as does killing blow. So, no doubt 0+ and -1+ armor saves are extremely good, but they're not completely unbeatable.
1. Win combat
3. Run down
The only time it really gets tricky is against unbreakable things, like the anvil of doom.
The best way to defeat almost everything in warhammer is to beat it in combat and run it down. It is the reason why everything is balanced.
Also the reason why unbreakable is the best special rule in the game.
