Oh. I misunderstood as well.

Is there any reason the center-of-gravity related balance of the battlement pieces would be different on the wall foundation than it is on the castle wall?

Is this what you are looking for?

A wall and gatehouse made with city builder stone buildings, battlements, and foundation/passages.

No, we're talking about the new battlements from KS4, not crenellations, the new big battlements.

Please be patient with pics. I'm almost finished painting my whole castle. Once it's done, I'll try to upload a bunch of pics to FB and then link them here to the appropriate thread(s).
Big thanks!

+1 for picture(s).

I don't generally worry about wall height unless there are specific components in the build that call for stacking. (Like tiered battlements, or corner towers.)

My layouts are representative, not literal.

It works fine. Right side up. Looks very short, though. Good enough for a fortified town, maybe. Or a big manor house.
Sorry to ask, but could you take a picture of that?
I'd like to know what it look like.
My problem is that Battlements look damn great, but I don't want any Gorgonite pieces so Ramparts/Castle/Citadel are out of the question for me...

I don't have any myself (yet), and I can't get the search function to take me past the first page of results (!), but the footprint of both pieces is 2"x2" so it should work just fine.

Probably works better if the narrow passage / wall foundation is upside down.
