    This is a pretty simple achievement. Go to Multiplayer and choose "Practice AI" and put the enemy on Most Gentle. This is pretty much a cake walk. I put the enemy on Tainted Coil and chose Ironheade (edit: using Tainted Coil makes this achievement almost impossible to get*) as my army because I'm more comfortable with them. I then chose the bladehenge level and proceeded to call a rallypoint, picked it up, moved to the first fan-geyser and spawned 2 sets of headbangers, 1 set of blade girls, and 1 bassist. I captured both geysers and upgraded my stage twice during the small fights. I then spawned two roadies and let them wail away on the enemy stage while the enemy was attacking my merchbooths. Be sure to use Battle Cry a lot to strengthen your units. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

    Things you are allowed to do:
    -Solo for a rallypoint flag
    -Solo for all units to gather around you
    -Solo for buffs (battlecry and dawn)
    -Solo for merch booth

    Things you CANNOT do:
    -Attack in any way including the solos for face melter, anvil, and zeppelin.
    -I wouldn't even touch the attack buttons, even if you aren't near an enemy.
    -Double-team even without attacking.*

    *Edit: Ellusion no has pointed out that you cannot double-team with any units no matter what, making this achievement almost completely impossible with Tainted Coil.

    SebastianSB I also just double teamed with the Ironheade's super unit on accident and still got the achievement.

    dejanzie You can still defend your Stage by blasting the speakers. Achievement still popped for me.

    MagicalChild I accidentally pressed "a" once but didn't hit anyone with it and also used the zeppelin solo and still got the achievement.
