First I think this game is great, you guys are doing a wonderful job.
Being able to customize the patrolling path for the footmen would be a great addition to the game play.
I have found that during my games the footmen like to congregate around the farming area. I usually set up a fence around a large area to keep the goblins out and that works except I end up with about twelve goblins milling around outside of my walls. This causing me problems at times when I want to leave the area and harvest outside the walls.
