Not a good match. I did not think they would be.

Well, it does work mostly, as I've said above, but a battlement on top of a Narrow Passage does look a little weird. But for sure there is no way a corner battlement will go on top of a corner wall.

Whoops, sorry, KS4 wall is fine, yes. But definitely not a KS1 wall. I thought you said you don't want to use Gorgonite anything.
Don't want to use Gorgonite, true. It's a shame Battlements won't work well with Narrow Dungeon Passage, but oh well...less money to spend on my to buy DF list lol so it's not bad.

I didn't know those Battlements could also fit on a single KS4 wall...that's interesting. Thanks again!
They can't, really. It's a very precarious balance on the one wall top. Better off using the Narrow Passage.
Seem to be working fine on this picture...

The following link has a photo that was posted of a straight battlement on a ks1 castle wall. It shows how loose the battlement sets on walls of that thickness. If it had been a narrow passage aka wall foundation it would have *some* additional support.

I am away from my collection so i cant post what you asked for... but others have indicated photos are coming.

Big, BIG thanks Vegomatic! It show me what i wanted to know, with pictures! The Wall Foundation (or Narrow Dungeon Passage) would indeed need more support since KS1 walls are too thin. I didn't know those Battlements could also fit on a single KS4 wall...that's interesting. Thanks again!

How about a bit of blu-tack?
Could work, I suppose.
