Introduction
Welcome to Halo Wars, the prequal to the Halo series which brings RTS to the series exclusively on the Xbox 360.
This game has a rather easy set of 43 achievements and 7 which make you want to scream. It will take roughly 30-40 hours to get all the achievements apart from the "Running The Show" achievement which requires 3.2 million exp on xbox live. You get roughly 2000-3000 exp per 2 hour game.

Step #1 - Campaign
If you want to mop up the campaign in one play through you will need to not only play on the hardest difficulty, but play on co-op to. While you're playing through the campaign, every single mission requires you to get the following:
A Skull
Black Box
Gold Medal
Finish In Par Time
and an achievement worth 5 points, there is one on every mission.
To get the skulls you will be given a secondary objective to kill a certain amount of a particular units, then it will show up. The black boxes are in set locations. Gold Medals are very tough to get, they require you to finish the level quickly, doing all secondary objectives and killing plenty of units.
The par times are all set and are usually around 30 minutes.
It's reccomended that you take two play throughs to get the single play achievements. The first one being on easy with a co-op, getting all skulls, black boxes and gold medals, and the second is completing the game on legendary within the par times.

Step #2 - Skirmish Mode
Skirmish mode has 7 particular achievements that must be completed in this mode. They are: "Playin' The Field", "Gallivant Around The Galaxy", Empire Builder", "Titan", "Big Al's Scooter", "Penny Pincher" and "My Friends Love Me".
Firstly do Empire Builder - Win one skirmish and one deathmatch game.
Then win a game winning with each leader for "Playin' The Field", then win on every map for the "Gallivant Around The Galaxy", win a skirmish game with 20,000 points for "Titan" then win a 3v3 game for "My Friends Love Me" and finally get the Big Al's Scooter and Penny Pincher at the same time.

2 More achievements can be got in either Skirmish or over Xbox Live and they are "Walk-Off Winner" and "2 Bugs Are Better Than 1".


Step #3 - Xbox Live
There are 7 achievements that must be completed over Xbox Live. They are: "N00b N0 M0r3", "So Lonely At The Top", "Basically Naive", "Officer On Deck" and "Running The Show".
First get N00b N0 M0r3 by simply being in the winning team in a game, when you win your first game you will also get Basically Naive.
Then win a game and be ranked first in it to get So Lonely At The Top
Get 80,000 exp online to become Leutenant and get Officer on Deck.
Then spend a while playing to get 2,400,000 exp for Running The Show.

Step #4 - Mop Up
If you got all the black boxes and skulls in the campaign, finish all within par times on Heroic, finish the campaign, get all gold medals and all Skirmish achievements, you should unlock the "Ready For The Sequel" Achievement for getting 100%. Now all that's left to do is play 24 hours of in match time (which you should naturally get). You should also now get "Crushed Colours" and "Own Worst Enemy".

Summary
If you've gotten this far and got 1,000 then congratulations, you have a lot more patience with this game then most people. Beating it on Legendary and earning 2.4million exp is no easy task.
If you are a completionist, be prepared for a lot of games. Other than a few achievements, the game is pretty easy.

Complete the Campaign on Heroic Difficulty
See "Detour The Great Journey".

Detour the Great Journey 50

Completing this achievement will also unlock "Adjudicate the Arbiter" as they are stackable.

If you find yourself outnumbered, just remember the 3 R's, Regroup, Retreat and Recruit.

Skulls do not effect the achievement, so use them.

Everything's Better With Bacon 5
Mission 1: Ram 50 Grunts with Warthogs
This can be tricky. Do the mission on Heroic, ram the units and retreat, let the ability recharge and repeat. You must kill the enemy before the AI do. When you get another Warthog, use that instead of Forge as it wont kill the enemy as easy and give you more to ram.

Endless Fun 5
Mission 2: Destroy every Methane Tank
The refinery is on the west of the map, find all methane tanks and destroy them, some are hidden by shields, one is in your base and one is slightly south of the eastern warthog area.

Mission 3: Kill at least 5 Covenant Units with the Bridge
Hack the bridge terminal with Professor Anders to switch it on. Wait for 5 Covenant Units to cross and switch it off to kill them.

The Real Winner 5
Mission 4: Save Adam
In the south of the map near where you begin, there are some skyscrapers slightly north, click on the control panel near it to release Adam, protect him until he gets to Ship 2 and when he boards this will unlock. The panel is near the Black Box.

If they get harmed, use healing powers. Construct a base and train 2 Wolverines and one scorpion, base those next to the Rhino's you need to protect. Best done on Easy.

Micro Manager 5
Mission 7: Do Not Destroy Any Power Node
Best way to do this is don't move your units, just keep Mach Blasting the Scarab until it falls, this method can only be done on easy.

Ramblin' Man 5
Mission 8: Use Elephants to train 100 Infantry
Do this on Legendary, set an Elephant's rally point to a heavily populated flood area and just keep spawning them until this unlocks. Your infantry will die leaving you more population to create more.

Sweet Naptime 5

Mission 9: Put every colony into hibernation mode at the same time.
Build 10 Hornets and go around the map and kill all the big infections. Once you kill one you will get a sub mission and a map directing you to all of them. You will be notified when you kill one and it will grey out on the map. When they are all dead make sure they all stay that way and proceed to the boss you have to kill. Shoot it a couple of time with your hornets and it will die. Easiest done on Easy difficulty.

The Procrastinator 5
Mission 10: Disrupt all Tractor Beams
There are four tractor beams on the map, one in each corner, clear the paths to and the areas around the tractor beams to make way for the vehicles you use to disrupt them. Make sure you only clear the top and bottom swarms so you can get to the final two before the mission ends.

Battened Down The Hatches 5
Mission 11: Save all the airlocks.
Do this on easy, build turrets around the airlocks, make plenty of flying units and destroy everything as quickly as possible, make sure they're still destroyed when the ring passes.

Handy With Tools 5
Mission 12: Repair the Power Core in less than 4 minutes
Firstly direct all the Cyclops's you have to the core. Then go to the right of the map and select the airlock and spawn as many Cyclops's as you can and as soon as they spawn direct them to the power core. Its essential to use health on the power core as soon as it becomes available. Easiest done on Easy in co-op.
Use the skulls Bountiful Harvest and Pain Train, they will reduce training times by 50 and make ressources come in 25% faster.
Beaming With Pride 5
Mission 13: Destroy 25 units with the Scarab
On the far east side of the map is an abandoned Scarab, simply kill the roots near it to free it and then jack it with your spartan, it becomes yours. Kill 25 units with it.

Didn't Get To Second Base 5
Mission 14: Don't claim an extra base
This mission only requires one base, build lots of fully upgraded scorpions and storm the area, leave Elephant in first base to make sure it doesn't get damaged. Just don't build another base and finish the mission.

Build a strong army preferably of Vultures and follow this guide:

(On Easy) You basically have to save all the things that allow you to spawn units. The best way is to build lots of Vultures and build every turret and upgrade it to deal with aircraft. Once you see one of the airlocks loosing life use health on it.

Handy With Tools 5
Mission 12: Repair the Power Core in less than 4 minutes
(On Easy) Its much easier to do this on co-op but its possible to do it on your own. Firstly direct all the Cyclops's you have to the core. Then go to the right of the map and select the airlock and spawn as many Cyclops's as you can and as soon as they spawn direct them to the power core. Its essential to use health on the power core as soon as it becomes available.

Thinkin' About My Doorbell 5
Mission 15: Open the Doors in order
(On Easy) Build a strong army preferably of Vultures and open the door in front of you. Then follow the arrow to the next one. After that ones open pick the one to the left of it and open it. Then follow the arrow to the next door and open it. Finally pick any remaining door and open it and again follow the arrow to open the last door.



Updated, thank you.

I agree to an extent but still, no need to slate people who are trying to help!
Even though he is wrong...

Oh and I found an easy way to get both of these achievements

Walk-Off Winner 30

Micro Manager 5
Mission 7: Do Not Destroy Any Power Node

When you start Mission 7 Do not attack at all, keep all your units at the base. Then all you have to do is keep firing his special attack which is the MAC Blast (up on the D-pad and up again). Just keep doing that and he will die. I found it easier this way as my troops would automatically target the nodes.

There are several threads on the halo wars forum that ive read, that are stating for a fact that General Rank/Status is set at 3.2 Million Points.

If you need factual evidence; the threads can be found in the search tab or you could ask Robeyone for a further confirmation as he was required to go through the process of achieving it.

Ill try to find the links for you know.

UPDATE:

So you need 3.2 million points to reach the level of general. That means you need 640 games at 5000 points to reach that level.

At 20 minutes a game, that would be short for 5000 points, you would have to play 213 hours.

At four hours a night that would be 53 days.

And that is winning EVERY game you play, and getting 5000 points.

At 2500 points a game, which is more reasonable...

That is 426 hours, or 106 days.

Again winning EVERY game you play, and getting 2500 points.

Problem is unlike Halo 3, this game doesn't match based on region, so if you want to boost you need to do it late at night and hope that you get matched with someone who does.

Realistically, this will take you about 6 to 8 months.
Heres the link to the post and the thread: Achievement Discussion I believe its post #17.

Hope that helps to sort it out/confirm.

great guide. awesome to have this for when i get it on tuesday.

One quick question though involving the skirmish achievements.

Do they have to be done as a skirmish or can they be done as a deathmatch.
