I feel like Bullfrog was trying to have their cake and eat it as far as tactics go.
They could have gone the traditional RTS route and made it possible to directly order/micromanage all of your minions, and give you the power to recruit whichever units you see fit.
OR they could have leaned further into making your horde an undifferentiated, uncontrollable mass, and tweaked the mechanics to suit that.

But they seem to have gone with an uncomfortable middle ground. I won’t say it doesn’t work – you do get used to it, but I felt a bit like I was fighting the mechanics rather than working with them a lot of the time.
