The way I did this was starting a 1v1 skirmish against an easy AI.
Gamemode: Strongholds.
Skulls: Pain train, Bountiful Harvest and Emperor.
Options: Fog of war OFF, unit ability cooldown 200%.
Leader: Voridus.
AI Leader: Doesn't really matter, I chose Jerome.
Map: Doesn't really matter.

So lets start the game. Since fog of war is turned off, you can see the entire map. This allows you to instantly take over all the minibuses. Next you want to use your leader power Voridus drop near the enemy base (but still out of range of the turrets and units). This will drop a Blisterback, Wraith and an engineer together with infusion on the ground. The Blisterback will start shooting at everything and spread even more infusion. Using this power as soon as it is ready to give you a nice army. You can also build your hero and use his Y ability to get infusion where he stands. You can also walk towards the enemy base and leave a trail of infusion.

Now to get the achievement, you will have to use the leader power cataclysm. This will have a long cooldown at the start. What cataclysm does is ignite all the infusion on the ground and deal huge amounts of damage. Once the cooldown of cataclysm is ready, use it when there are a lot of enemies on top of the infusion.

This will probably take you around 5 times of using cataclysm since it expires pretty quickly. Thanks to the Emperor skull cataclysm will be ready in half the time it would normally take.
