Default Gold Tank? Fluffy?

I'm about to paint my Vanquisher, and I was wondering if it was common or even allowed in the imperium to gold leaf your commanders tank. The Tank I have is green and will have gold trim. It's the commanders tank from a tank company. I just want to make shure before I paint the gold this is okay by imperium standards.

While it may not be common, I don't see why not. It would work better if your regiment hailed from a richer forge/hive world though, so that they could afford such lavish things.

It's aldaria, a world rich in resources both agricultural and mineral. At least before the rebellion. after it's kinda mostly just mineral rich.

I've seen enough Space Marine fluff with gold trim, why not have a stuck up human wanting to show off?

Fortress of Arrogance, anyone?

okay, i know that Yarrik's personal 'Blade is kind of a special case, but there's no reason why other commanders wouldn't go for a similar look. i think it'd look awesome if done well.

well the commanders not arrogant. He turns against the government to help fight a war of freedom. The gold is from countless victories on other worlds. He's a tank ace.

The codex doesn't mention anything about restrictions concerning paints and camouflage.

If your regiment is from the richest bastards in the whole Imperium, I would say yes but unfortunately, that's a lot of wasted resources. Gold trimmings and decorations, yes but the whole thing gold? No. Gold is needed elsewhere to be used for vital components.
