Can this work for the Old West?

The wagon wheel is off. Should be spoke but as far as terrain goes use what you like. To me this fits better with a European setting but then the Corn is present. So not really sure.

Sometimes being so picky kills the mood on something that looks nice like this. I really like the roof. The added clutter around the dwelling gives some character to the piece.

Lovely cottage.

Always like their stuff. 28 euros is a good price for the cottage as well. There is so much detail. But the shipping is expensive. Unless you order 250 euros worth of stuff, then it's free. That is an even better deal. Get a few friends together and you can get some nice buildings for the club games.

Around Christmas they offer an even better deal which is free product worth 20percent of your order. And still free shipping with 250 purchase.

Plus they are a great company to order from.

Pumpkin is a New World giveaway.

Perhaps the solid "wagon wheel" is actually a cover for the water barrel.

Attention on the "wagon wheel" is mounting. The axle and pin are still in the wheel? Is there an axle stub mounted in the wall then?

So… with little modification it can be used as a cabin for the Old West… (smile)

Maize and pumpkin – definitely not medieval.

Another good indicator would be the chimney, as medieval huts or houses rarely had one ("rarely" as in "not").

I will probably get me one of these in my next order, but it will not be part of my "medieval" landscape. Rather atypical for them, but I never regretted buying any of their models yet, and deeply regret that I did not buy some.

My understanding (from looking at their models) is that Tabletop World is aiming at producing interesting looking fantasy models, rather than historically accurate buildings.

That said, their work looks very impressive in pictures – though I have not seen any of them actually in person.

Yep, this is aimed at Fantasy, but it sure is a gorgeous thing. They model brick-by-brick when they make these which is pretty slick.

Any of the buildings I got into my hands (roughly a dozen) stand fully up to the pictures. Sculpt and cast are second to no other product on the market.

That wagon wheel is actually spot on for Mexican carts.
