They can ride in a Trukk but the codex doesn't explicitly state it. Don't have my rulebook handy but pretty sure you'll find in there a section covering who can ride in transports.

Iv'e used them a normal boys for the purpose of passengers - and nobody has complained about it to date.

Though, I reckon they would fall under the ogryn section and take up two spaces in a transport.

but until someone proves otherwise my vote is unrestricted.

I say till the new codex hits our grimy hands they can and they count as one model since ammo runts and squigs count as 1 even though they are 1/2 the size of an ork.

But i hope this is fixed in the newer codex.

What do you mean by "fixed"? Are you on about them following the same rules as Terminators??

If so then I can see your point - but do you realise how many Ork players that would screw with? And do you realise that they would be highly unusable?

That is if the rules aren't fixed..

Well, I think "fixing" this would no good idea. To limit my Warboss plus retinue to only 5 Models? Well, no. The actual model may be really tiny, but therefore you can build your owns. And then you should take into account that a wartrukk is open topped, so there is actually more room (where you can put your fat weapon cauz as we saw, Orks arn't fat )than in an completely closed tank.
And rulewise it is not mentioned in the Kodex. It's a special rule only for SM terminators.

Unless they change the minimum size of a Nobz retinue (from 5 to 4) or the carrying capacity of a Trukk that 'fix' is never going to happen. The Warboss and 5 Nobz comes to 6 models - that will never fit if each counts as 2, and that's even before grots, squigs, more Nobz, doks, meks, etc.
