3ds Max fencing problem

Hi all, I have a problem with the railings: how can I set the posts and the fencing to follow a custom shape drawn with a NURBS path?
If it’s not possible how can I do that?

You mean like the PathDeform modifier?

Maybe, yes. But when I do it I get strange shapes.
I’m trying to make these http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-G42MVk4T3N0/UNx0BPpjmjI/AAAAAAAAHXI/U4FBo-qhLWY/s1600/snow2.jpg (lower right corner)
