I'm still finding my way around Civ V. Playing as Carthage on Prince, I started on a small landmass with just me and China. I chose a military opening, built some units (and had a few gifted from city-states), and conquered Beijing before either of us even had a second city. I built all these units expecting there would be more civs to conquer on the starting continent but nope, it's just us. My remaining army consists of 2 archers, 2 chariot archers, a horseman, an elephant, and a GG. I did send out a boat which found a couple more civs on a continent not far to the west. Now in Civ IV, which I know better, I probably would have just consolidated after winning that war, settling a bunch of cities across my newly-owned continent. But that doesn't seem like the right play here, because I've already bought a bunch of military policies, and I have all these units sitting around costing me maintenance. There's usable land on my continent, but no enticing resources to be grabbed or anything like that, and I'm trying to adjust to this new strategy where it's not necessarily good to have a whole bunch of cities. What do I do with all these units? Should I embark them and just invade my closest overseas neighbor ASAP? (I'm kind of scared to do an overseas invasion in Civ V since I've never done one.) Or will I stretch myself too thin if I try that when I only have 2 cities back home? Should I maybe just keep the experienced units to be upgraded later and disband the rest to save on maintenance? That seems like a waste. By the way, can I trust my military advisor when he tells me someone else has a weak army, or could there be a bunch of additional units in the fog of war that he doesn't know about?
