Basically, if your opponent marches to your gates, he would've lost some stamina, affecting the performance of his soldiers. So either he could just attack straight away like in traditional RTS, or, he would line up his units and trebuchets and rams while they regain their stamina. Imagine rows of perfectly lined battalions like in real life. This is what I mean by real life. They line themselves, you prepare all your units on the walls and your siege weaponry. The enemies blow their warhorns all of a sudden and chaaaarge at your walls.

I hope you guys can picture what I can, LOTR style (not the game, the movies and books!). Imagine how the army of Saruman lined up at Helms Deep, remember Théoden at Pelennor Fields, the Battle for Minas Tirith etc.
Well, yes, only, in an RTS, by then, all of your nice batallions will have been shot by the enemy's archers...
