The terrian is excellent. You created a wonderful feel to the board with the abandoned city.

Thank you. It will be the terrain I have for the demo game at Fall In.

How do the rules handle infantry occupying buildings?

They handle infantry occupying buildings in an abstract way. The infantry can move into the building and then they are in the building. You can divide bigger buildings into parts. This is pretty much the only way that close combat happens in the game is when a unit is in a building and another unit doesn't want them to be there anymore.

The infantry can fire from the building or they can hunker down inside it.

Worth adding that buildings are rated for size, which determines the number of infantry that can fire out of them, while double that number can occupy a building. Size also determines how much damage a building takes to destroy, and even damaging a building can kill infantry (slowly) via falling rubble. You can also fire at infantry directly even inside a building, assuming they're declared to be in a firing position on a side of the structure that you can draw line of sight to, but they are fairly hard targets in that case. Flame and chemical spray weapons are very good at clearing infantry out of cover, but other than that infantry assaults are generally the fastest way to kill them.

It is fun and really makes you think. I think with bigger games the complexity of the strategy will be pretty interesting. The rules aren't very complex, which is nice. But the strategies, especially against different forces, will make for a challenging game where mistakes in deployment are really going to cost you if you lose your drop ships.
