I've been told this by several people; apparently Grey Knights in power armour can't get into Rhinos of any sort because they count as models in Terminator armour.
The problem with this logic is pretty clear...
Grey Knights in power armour can't get into Rhinos bought as dedicated transports for ISTs, because it states in our Codex that transports can only be used by the unit they were bought for. There's no such rule in the Smurf Codex, and so if I take a squad of PAGKs in a Smurf list they are allowed to get into a Rhino bought as an upgrade for a Tactical/ Assault squad in said Tactical/ Assault squad isn't also embarked.
There's a FAQ for the 5th edition that says that you are limited to any restrictions that your codex imposes on dedicated vehicles. Basically, if your codex says that the the transport is only for the certain people, then it is only for those people and no one else.
If people continue to hassle you with this logic, send them my way... Tell them I have a shiny object for them... (A thunderhammer all blistery with energy!!!) lol
What I'm trying to establish is if Grey Knights in power armour are somehow prevented from ever boarding any Rhino under any circumstances, or if they're only prevented from boarding Rhinos in pure DH Codex armies because of the transport restrictions? The "counts as Terminators" argument just doesn't do it for me, unless my PAGKs are allowed a 5+ invulnerable save and Deep Strike as well.
PAGK's don't count as Terminator models in terms of transports. That's just pure ignorance - basically he heard it from someone but didn't bother to research it and just took the guy's words.
If the GK's are allies to space marines, then they could ride in the SM rhinos (but not start off the game deployed in them). As far as I know, there aren't the same restrictions on SM dedicated transports as there are in the DH/WH codices (though I hear there's 2 versions of the WH codex).

All you have to do is prove that grey knights dont count as having Terminator armor.
I cannot remember ever reading anything about PAGK having terminator armor. get these people to point to a rule that states they have Terminator armor, if they cant then they either will drop their pointless argument, or come up with a new way to not let you do it. If they still dont let you do it; dont play with them (their argument doesint even make sense)
The rule that dedicated transports can only transport certain units may have been removed from 40k (not sure never really figured that out) If the transports still count as dedicated then you will not be able to use them to transport grey knights. this has nothing to do with the armor the Grey knights have on, its because that transport can only transport the unit it was bought for.
hope i helped

"Thank him who puts me loath to this revenge on you who wrong me not for him who wrongd"
Yeah, the opponent is right that GKs can't take Rhinos in DH armies, but wrong in that it's because they're considered to be the same as terminators. I can see this argument for Grey Knight TERMINATORS, and perhaps this is what the OP's opponent said, or meant to say. That would make much more sense.
No, plain vanilla GKs can't take Rhinos in a DH army because it simply says in the codex that their only transport option is the Land Raider. Now, that's in a purely DH army. My vote is that if Tau pathfinders can "lend" their dedicated Devilfish transport to a firewarrior squad and get away with it, there's certainly no reason why a GK squad allied to a SM squad can't take a dedicated SM Rhino. As far as I'm concerned, it's the same thing.
My only quibble would be that, by that rationale, GK terminators should also get to ride in a Rhino. Yes? No?
No. Rhinos and Razorbacks cannot carry any models in Terminator armour.My only quibble would be that, by that rationale, GK terminators should also get to ride in a Rhino. Yes? No?
