There is no easy way of getting this to unlock and will take some time. Stratagems are a new feature in the game in which you can execute commands of sorts and have some effect on you character, stage, or use a move to damge enemies. For this achievement you need to kill 10,000 enemies to unlock it.

Important: This must be done in one scenario

Edit: Apparenlty it doesn't have to be done in one playthrough(Thanks dartz).

I had created a female character when i first got the game. The game gave me Ice strike as my first stratagem. That is your best best to unlocking this achievement as I feel it kills more enemies than the others.

Stratagems I know that work are the following;(if you know others work, please let me know)
Ice Strike
Fire Strike
Lightning Strike
Explosion( Recommend as the best one to use by Dartz)

Now the part on how to tackle this. I would choose a scenario that has a lot of diversity within rulers so the game can last longer to your liking. Before accept, I would recommend pressing RB in the setting and leveling up your character if you have any bonus points so you have more stratagem uses right away. I would also recommend playing on beginner to make it easier. Now start the game and choose any character as you like. From there start doing as many quests, raids and invasions as possible while trying not to dominate the whole land too quickly.

If you start as a free officer don't become a prefect. It takes away your rights to do quests and raids(really annoying if you ask me). However what I did was load up a battle and rush straight to the nearest base. Once there were a ton in my surroundigs, I used my stratagem and got kills. I would run around and do it again until the base was captured or it wasn't worth wasting one if I was only to get a few kills out of it.(some bases won't spawn a lot of enemies so I suggest not using them there and let your strats recover)

Keep doing this till the achievement pops. It'll pop in game. I was averaging about 200-400 kills per level when i was focusing on it. So expect it to take around 30+ levels to accomplish depending on how many kills you get and what strats you use obviously. Hopefully this helps and happy hunting everyone.
