    Pick Guan Du Scenario
    Pick Yuan Shao (he owns 4 yellow lands at the top-right)
    You should get upgraded to count then be offered special stage.
    If you don't then restart the same scenario as it might not always trigger.
    Save after winning or losing and it will unlock.

    (NB: There is no Juan Shao like lots of guides tell you. You can also do this with Cao Cao, but you need to skip 3/4 battles and it might not always come up)

    This one is very easy, and not what the other guides are telling you.

    When you have the "Battle of Guan Du" available, start the game in Empire mode. Don't do ANYTHING like assigning orders or anything else. Simply select Proceed to go to the Battle screen. Select Skip Battle and you will immediately be offered the special battle. Start the special battle, immediately pause and select retreat. When you get back to the menu, save the game and the achievement will unlock.

    Other guides are telling you that you need to get to the rank of Count first. THIS DOES NOT WORK. I tried this a million times and never got offered the special battle. Just skip everything your first turn and it will be offered to you.

    Also: Thanks to The Globalizer for bringing up that you need to play as Yuan Shao to trigger the battle.

    Choose empire mode then start a new game.
    Choose Battle of Guan Du
    Choose Yuan Shao (dark yellow in northeast. it defaulted on him for me.
    Choose your settings.
    Choose proceed
    Then skip battle. After you are awarded an imperial office, it will say Yaun Shao moved to remove the final obstacle to his control of the central plains Cao Cao.
    It should now be asking you to participate in a special battle.
