I am trying to model a wall that starts out straight then inclines at an angle but at the same time tapers in width.  I have tried using reference planes and extruding the walls but I wind up with a wedge missing between the vertical segment and the inclined segment but that has been the only way I have been able to edit the profile of the wall to show the taper.  Is there a way to do this?

The only way you can achieve this is to create an in-place wall family

Go to Component --> in place family --> then pick wall catrgory and start creating the shape you desire.

I don't agree with your process.  First, why create a generic, model in place and then assign wall by face?  This is not required, just do the form in the category walls.  If the exterior of these walls need a grid then you might do as you have shown but then that leads us to the next problem.  Second, with your process, after you create the form, YOU DELETE IT after applying the wall by face.  Believe me - you will be needing to change this wall at some time but you can never do that because you deleted the form.  Use a workset to hide the form or simply hide it.
