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!

Could work, I suppose.

I just took a straight battlement and stuck it on a narrow passage piece. It does work. There is a little precariousness because the front wall is too thin for the battlement clip to be of any use, but the back wall provides enough support for the piece. To make it more stable, a temporary shim to thicken up the front wall against the battlement clip would be best. I could try experimenting with a popsicle stick, as long as I can find (and eat) a popsicle within a reasonable timeframe.
