Hi. Yes it is possible for a 10 stand unit to form line from a single column in one turn if you face left or right. This way, every base rotates 90 degrees. The footprint of the unit doesn’t change: just its facing. This is one of the two ways you can change formation. Under the second method, by guidon, you could not complete the change within one move because you cannot expand or contract your footprint by more than 2 BW.

Hey Schorsch,

If you read this post you’ll see Sam’s comment that it is in ‘the spirit of the game’ (my paraphrasing) to allow such a unit change, we allow it in our games as a general house rule...
