While I don’t game, Epic scale, I have gamed with different base configurations.  You and your opponent need to agree what constitutes the way to display a given formation.  In the past, three “stand” units displayed a square formation as a “triange”, while two “stand” units displayed it with one stand facing forward and one backward.  Given the importance of frontage in Black Powder, I would have the triangle face oriented so the enemy most like to strike it, would contact one of its faces, not its “points”.
