To get the Largest Army card, you need to use at least 3 soldier cards. To keep the Largest Army card, you need to have used more soldier cards than anyone else. To get a soldier card, you must build development cards. There is a better chance of getting a soldier card than any other card, by about 50-60%, estimated.

After 10 games of doing this, you should get the achievement.

TIP: Do NOT do this achievement along with Citizen and Builder of Catan. If you are to get all 3 achievements, or any other achievements, simultaneously in this game, it will record one and void all the others unless you load Catan onto another Xbox 360 and recover your gamertag. This is the only known workaround. View Xebu's comment below for more information.

EDIT: Win or lose, as long as you end the game in possession of any card, it will count towards your achievement.

Aerodynamo's solutions absolutely works, but I thought I would add another detail to potentially spare some people extra time.

The achievement says "End any game..." so I thought I could just play 3-player with easy AI to speed things up. Turns out that 10 3-player games don't work for this (found out the hard way). I only got the achievement after 10 4-player games w/ Largest Army.

Just thought I would put that out there so people don't end up wasting time trying to short cut like I did.
