We had this discussion few days ago at the local store. whenever i play my 1500 pts speed freeks army, theres always one Wartrukk thats empty, and i use it as a diversionary tactic. now since its open topped, do i have to tell my opponent what i see in it. common sense wise, i agree, but then again, some rules dont make all that much sense. so, is there any thing in the Rules book that says i dont have to tell whats in my transports? or is it one of those ''house ruilings''.
Good question. I think RAW would say that you don't have to tell which one is empty even though it does violate real world logic. Regardless of it's type, it's a transport and no where does it say you MUST disclose what is in the transport till it disembarks.

Personally, I think you should tell them or atleast make sure that you have it written down on a piece of paper what is in what. This simply insures that there is no cheating or that you can't be blamed for cheating even if you didn't. I think it is a common curtisy but I don't know of a rule for it.

I am not aware of any rule thats states open topped changes this.
IMO thats the appeal of transport armies, your opponents has to play rhino (or in thise case, wartrukk) roulette to get your HQ or any other important unit.
The BGB states (can't remember exact page, but somewhere near the end by the missions) "a note on secrecy", you don't have to tell people what's in a transport. You must, however, deploy things in order (heavy, troops, elite, hq, fast attack).
Be aware, though, many tournaments have house rules contradicting this. So be prepared to have to tell your opponent.
