    You need to build a Hall of Heros to unlock the various heroes. There are 3 heroes for each civilization and 6 civs. I believe that you can use any combination to get this achievement. To unlock the heroes you need to acquire flags of each civilization. The only way to get flags of other civs is to attack them and destroy their universities and cathedrals. For each of the level 1 heroes you need 100 flags from each civ. I found Saracens the hardest to come by as it seemed no one was using them. Level 2 heroes cost 750 flags each. Thanks to WinMo Kirby for pointing this out

    WinMo KirbyYou can see what the tier 2 heroes cost by clicking on them, you just can't purchase it until you level up your Hall of Heroes. This is true for everything you can buy in the game, so you always know what you might need.

    Any way, it's 750 flags for tier 2 heroes, 3,500 for tier 3.

    ADaughenI got this by building the hall and buying all the tier 1 heroes.

    The flag buildings are big, so they usually aren't guarded inside the castle. Just find one flush with flags, raid and surrender. Keep an eye on which ones you need and if it is the wrong type, move on to another castle.

    Lamar RomneyThis may be glitched. I unlocked the achievement on Windows 8, but it won't pop here.

    Bears Scare MeI had some delay with TA showing the achievements but it always fixed itself after an hour or so.

    Lamar RomneyOh I should re-phrase. I got the achievement in Windows, but it does not show I completed it in the Age of Empires app itself on Windows Phone. By 'here' I meant the WP version of the game, not TA.

    Bears Scare MeOh gottcha, yea they have sync issues between the win 8 version and WP. They have mentioned in the forum that they are aware of the issues and are working on it

    PRELUDEcrisyou can also purchase gold and buy the heroes with gold if that's your sort of thing. I just want to add that, as with any F2P game you can buy gold and unlock practically anything with it.

    Itzz Sh0wt1m3About the syncing issue, shutting down the app on the other device and restarting it works for me.

    TaeglinI've been wondering, the game gives you the option to change civs. Does doing so reset anything? If not, why not get all of the things for your chosen civ, then move to another one so that your buildings are producing flags for the race you need?

    Bears Scare MeYou get flags so quickly from battle it is not really necessary. I honestly don't know if you lose anything from switching civs. I don't think you lose anything other than the 500 gold it costs.
