Okay, after working with several of my kids profiles I think I have finally figured out why this achievement seems to be so buggy. I did finally get this to pop on a profile using only a single lineup of 13 dwarves instead of all 78 combinations. It appears that this achievement requires you to control and form a buddy-up with each dwarf at least once and get a kill with the dwarf you are controlling in the buddy-up.

Start with Balin in the character 1 slot and team up with a static dwarf in character 2 (I just kept it Thorin in character 2 since he seems to be everyone's favorite). Make sure you are controlling character 1, hit B to team up and then kill some orcs. When you kill something in the combo, you must make sure that whatever it is flashes red and dies, not just falls apart. If it falls apart without flashing that means your buddy in character 2 slot got the kill credit and not you. Once you get a good kill ( I killed at least 3 every combo just to be safe) then switch character 1 to the next dwarf in line (Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Dwalin, Fili, Kili, Gloin, Nori, Oin, Ori, and finally Thorin) and repeat. Again, make sure you are switching the dwarves in order in the character 1 slot and using character 1 to press B and form the combo group. Should take 13 combinations to do it, finishing with Thorin/Thorin (if you decided to use Thorin in slot 2).

Again, I found a good place to grind this out is on the "Azog the Defiler" starting at "The Battle of Azanulbizar" with invulnerable turned on. When you reach the part of the level where the second siege tower comes out normal enemies spawn along with the ones you have to kill to proceed. Do not knock open the breakable wall on the second tower with a buddy attack and the regular guys just keep re-spawning forever. (Also a good spot to get the "Bros Before Gold" and "Conjurer of Cheap Tricks" achievements).



Bad solution kept here just for kicks.
For this achievement I had to do all the combinations of dwarves together. Since there are 13 dwarves it took me 78 combinations. I found a good place to grind this out is on the "Azog the Defiler" starting at "The Battle of Azanulbizar" with invulnerable turned on. When you reach the part of the level where the second siege tower comes out normal enemies spawn along with the ones you have to kill to proceed. Do not knock open the breakable wall on the second tower with a buddy attack and the regular guys just keep re-spawning forever. (Also a good spot to get the "Bros Before Gold" and "Conjurer of Cheap Tricks" achievements).

I started with Balin in character one then cycled the second character in order the rest of the dwarves (Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Dwalin, Fili, Kili, Gloin, Nori, Oin, Ori, and finally Thorin). After Thorin I switched character one to Bifur and then cycled character two from Bofur to Thorin. Switch character one to Bofur and cycle character two from Bombur to Thorin, etc. etc.
