BSBs in 6th edition typically couldn't take any equipment options, which was pretty weak. However, this was typically enforced in the armybooks -- I don't know of a specific BRB rule prohibiting it.

Regardless, it's being phased out in 7th. All of the newer armybooks allow BSBs to take mundane equipment options as normal, and either a magic banner or magic armaments. Just look in your armybook, and if it doesn't specify a restriction, you're golden.
