I was drafting an army list when i hit a sort of rules bump. If i use a character with mark of nurgle, and he joins a unit, will the whole unit benefit from its effects. When they target the unit you could say he is a model in it. Or you could also say that they are targeting the unit not the character.
Mark of Nurgle specifies Model not Unit.
So it only applies to attacks aimed at the characer/model with the MoN.

Do it the other way around.
If you put a character into a unit with the Mark of Nurgle then your character will be able to enjoy the benefits. Characters in units cannot be targetted themselves, so the unit must be fired at, so you gain the defensive bonus against shooting. In combat no model, unless on a smaller base can possibly avoid touching one of the models flanking your character, so you will gain the melee bonus too. If you are doing the charging then you can ensure that you overlap two models and then you definitely get the Nurgle bonus from the unit without taking the same mark on your character.
My Nurgle Knights are led by an unmarked character for this very reason.
Yup, a unit with Nurgle allows a character to hide in the filth and "enjoy" the benefits. The only exception is a character of more than unit strength 5 ... hmm. I guess that only applies to dude's on Manticores and Chaos Dragons, which can't join units regardless. Nevermind! I suppose in the rare case that an opponent is able to target your character within the unit using an attack requiring a BS roll ... but that's not gonna happen too often. Isn't there an Empire unit that can do it, Hochland Longrifles or something ...?
Yeah they can target them
Poxy little girly weapons. Honestly. If you want to shoot people play 40k!!
Well I'm trying to avoid getting shot
And the reason I'm asking is i like my troops marked with slaanesh, and i wanted to give them just that extra defensive edge. I already use unmarked heros in my nurgle knight units.
