I called and asked Gamesworkshop about this, even though I have not seen anything about it in a FAQ yet, but if you have a unit that gets into combat with a unit with the mark of Nurgle, and somehow gets combined with a fear causing unit still has a WS of 1.
So for example if a unit of chosen with the mark of nurgle are in combat with some empire greatswords or whatever and you have a character or another unit, like ogres or trolls for example, that causes fear also gets into combat and the greatswords fail their fear check, the WS of the Greatswords is reduced to 1, and the extra -1 they get from the Mark of Nurgle does not reduce it to 0, which would then mean they wouldn't be able to attack and would be autohit.
Maybe, but just remember that thanks to the FAQ, they only suffer the penalty when attacking the model with the MoN. It has no benefit when the MoN model attacks them.

Yes, but that way is still just as bad since that would cause you to roll to hit as normal, granted your are the Warrior player, and they would get no attacks back. So having it not be able to get less then 1 at least allows them to attack.
i wld imagine that they cant go blow zero as everyhting mush have a WS and nerlyeverything says to a minium of 1
besides do u just not get a +1 to hit and not reduduce thier WS
for e,g, u wld normaly hit on 3's but u have the MoN so u hit on 2's
nope scrap that just read the FAQ
-1 WS and BS to a minimum of 1
its kind of crap as u hit nearly everything on 3's anyway and u cant go below 3
yep, MoN is pretty terrible now. WTB 6th ed nurgle. added wounds to your heroes. WOUNDS!

I am playing it anyway that it goes to a minimum of 1, but where in the FAQ was it showing that its a minimum of 1?
The reason WS0 was brought up is because they specifically bring up having a WS of 0 in the area where it talks about characteristics going to 0, and also then FAQ and so on for like the Masque and other things that can bring leadership and other characteristics to 0.
in the FAQ b4 8th ed came out it said to a minimum of 1 so logic wld say that they just forgot to re-type that in to the new FAQ
i think in the next codex they will change nurgle as right now u are only realy getting the -1 to shooting which is terrible for the cost
maybe they shld give them a 5+ regen or +1 toughness
