With the implementation of the new UAM (Unit Action Menu) a few changes in strategy and more importantly, game play should be considered.

Use the ALL UNITS button at the Top Left of the map for an overall view of your entire army. This is also the best place to cast all your spells, as you can just scroll down the list and double click for multiple casting of the same spell without having to click and re-click the stack to cast. The same technique is used for blowing horns, changing out unit equipment or entrenching. If a mass missile attack is planned, do that here too (just double click each unit after the 1st unit is ordered).

When it's time to move your units, attack the enemy or individually target missile attacks click on each unit stack on the map and order the movement from that spot.

Before pressing the next turn button, call up the ALL UNITS one more time and check that all the actions that you want to happen have been ordered and also to check that you didn't miss a unit(s) that you wanted to move or entrench etc.

Note that the small "status window" showing your cursor position and the terrain at that spot is "draggable". The title bar is the handle.
