Walkthrough : you have to begin with 4 varls and no other characters. It seems to be obvious, but you have to choose 6 characters when you begin the game, and it could give you a bad interpretation of this achievement.
At the next step, before beginning the first battle, don't forget to remove 2 characters and keep only 4 varls.

I did it with Iver, Bolverk, Hakon and Gunnulf. Last wave is the HARDEST. Credits to Giopeppe on steam who helped me.

Just want to let you know my strategy, since it took me a lot of attempts before i found a working strategy to kill the Bellower and don't get him possessed by Eyeless just after .

1st- Iver-lvl10 ;
2nd- Bolverk-lvl10 with +BRK item (Miniature Carving was GREAT)
3rd- Gunnulf-lvl 10
4th- Hakon-lvl10 with the best you could equip him as a damage dealer.

My strategy:

a) On the right side, using Iver and Gunnulf Forge Ahead you need to kill SOMETHING weak
This is needed to let Eyeless possess him, then you just need let her be TRAPPED in that creature an kill Bellower and the rest first;

b) On the left side, keep Bolverk and Hakon positioned just out of Bellower's reach, then use Bolverk's passive to break armor (6-7) and do some STR damage. Use Hakon to damage his STR further, keep your heroes safe from the big ones and, in the next turn, you should be able to kill Bellower letting Iver/Krumr give a hand or just with Bolverk double attack;

c) Kill the rest except Eyeless and avoid to be killed or crippled too much;

Hope it helps.
