    If you align your troops in these positions in the character inventory (X indicating a position occupied by nobody):

    X*******X
    X*X***X*X

    In an ensuing battle, they are actually positioned like this:

    X*******X
    XX*X***X*X

    That is, one of the backliners (directly behind a frontliner on the left side of the formation as shown in the character inventory) is positioned one space to the inside of the applicable frontliner once battle begins, and another of the backliners (directly behind a frontliner on the right side of the formation as shown in the character inventory) is positioned one space to the outside of the applicable frontliner once battle begins. So it looks like any empty spaces to the left of the frontline in the character inventory are deleted once battle begins.

    Just tried it like you had described – worked fine for me. Maybe I misunderstood the issue.

    You’re aware that with the hexagonal tiles in the game every other vertical line is displaced by half a tile in height, so there’s no way that the frontline and backline could ever really match, right?

    But the allignment in the menu could be made in the same hexagonal way it is done in battle and the problem is solved.

    "I am a Paladin!"
    >OMG, Malthus, there are no damn paladins in Battle Brothers...<
    "OK, OK! Then I´m a wrecked down minstrel drunkard pretending to be a paladin, singing so wrong in the midst of battle that even the undead run in fear... Better?!"

    Yeah. The explanation is as you suggested. I second Malthus’s suggestion, though. Either that or having an octagonal battlefield!
