To start off, you'll need to have a fully captured region with at least 1 available space in the Army for that region. (You can free up a spot by shunning a follower if necessary).

Next, you'll want to get killed by a random enemy. Just find an area and let yourself die, making sure that you don't die to a captain or warchief. The orc that kills you will get promoted to captain and take up 1 spot in the army. Remember their name and appearance.

The next step is to dominate that enemy that killed you and make them one of your followers. To do this, locate them (in the open world or in a mission), and fight them until you dominate them. Once dominated, recruit them to your team and tell them to retreat.

The last step involves promoting this new follower to the overlord position. The follower must NOT be busy with any type of mission, so if they are, you can aid them in completing their current mission or advance time using a fast travel Haedir point and hope that they survive. Once they are available, Command them and choose the Overlord position (top of the pyramid), and reposition them in order to promote them to overlord, gaining you the achievement.
