You should be able to use the PlayerSide = $CurrentPlayer$ filter in
there somewhere. That's a common filter whenever you want an action tied
the player committing the action.

If you use a button or some command to start a new turn, you can have it

TileType = Units

Then send the GKC to apply to all pieces with

CurrentMap = (map the units are on) && TileType = Units
