The context for this short and easy to understand guide is Legendary/ VH difficulty. Keep in mind that playing on other difficulties may change AI behaviour and will in any case somehow change up things. However it is likely the guide will be valid nonetheless and even probably easier to execute.

Goal and Execution

This strategy will be a diplomatic one. You will rush the diplomacy for lord skills (top tree). Your goal is to befriend both Malus and Throgg. They will not like you for allying both, but they will not hate it either. This demands some maintenance down the road. This will do 2 crucial things for you. 1. Secure the southern and western flanks. This creates only one way in. 2. Buys you time. For this strategy to work you will have to make some gambles. Those are mainly that malus and throgg will do well. You may want to send them help if needed, but be aware this may steal your needed momentum from expanding East.

To befriend them use any means necessary. Sell a settlement to malus. Even if this robs you of a full province. Remember money buildings in settlements make them more valuable to AI. And wait at least one turn before selling. They don’t like the heat. Join war against all their enemies; Malus and Throgg’s – if need be. Your goal is 2 defensive alliances. Be careful with joining war against malus first enemy though which would be at your doorstep.

Then take out the tzeentch faction to the east and eventually get the jump on Boris. Archeon is another potentially powerful ally. Go wreak some havoc. Befriending Archeon will get you further away from your victory condition, but this will make your life easier.
