    This relates to Anglo Saxons, first campaign, mission 3, Wells under siege

    You can cheese the mission and make it and this achievement really easy.
    In the beginning you are tasked to capture back your base. Do so.
    Once you capture your base you're tasked to capture 2 villages.
    Only capture one of them and then just wait to build up ressources, while clearing random roaming enemies off the map.
    Capture the 5 broken catapults and move them to the bottom left corner of the map.

    Now you capture the second village. Now you'll be on a timer to an endless flood of enemies attacking you (the point that is reffered to as night time). Also you get the objective to move 10 catapults to the bottom left corner. Now you already have 5 catapults there, so you should unlock the achievement. Maybe you need to jiggle and move them around a bit to register.

    Now you can also build a workshop. Immediately build 5 more catapults and move them to the extraction point, to finish the mission before the enemies even attack you.

    MassiveAssault5This was the way to go. I just saved up enough wood to build the blacksmith and churned out 5 catapults. Easy peasy. None of the enemies on the map respawn so once you clear it out initially you can just sit around and collect resources as long as one village is left uncaptured.

    This achievement is unlocked during the 3rd level of the first Anglo-Saxons campaign, "Edward the Confessor"

    I found the achievement to be fairly simple using the following method:

    At the beginning of the level you will fight off attackers at the castle. They will have catapults, which you can take for yourself after you kill their crews (unsure if they can be destroyed or not, I used archers to kill the crews just to be safe). As soon as you get access to your base and get the objective to deliver catapults, begin recruiting slingers (they are the cheapest units) to take control of them, there should be five in total. Make sure to clear the area near the catapults, as there will be enemies there. Once you deliver the fifth one, the achievement will pop, provided you did so before nightfall (you will know when that is because new enemies will start attacking you). Additional catapults can be recruited after building the blacksmith, should you need them.
