I'll be happy for answears
As a general rule, no they can't be the battle standard bearer. There are exceptions, at least one I know is the lizardman slann. It will state the rules in the box in the army book for making a hero the BSB. If it doesn't specifically say he can't be the general then he can.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
I believe that the LM are the only ones who have the exception for the BSB being the general. I could be wrong and it will not be the first time nor the last time. Generally it helps you out with tests or such and works better close to the general.
