And instead of 8 barracks, y not 4 with reactor cores?

Actually thats lame
Its warming up, and 8 barracks is more flexible than 4 with reactors, a pack of mutas can come in and 2-3 shot a reactor.

Could it be option C? Both?

Update: Got a total score of 624k for the Lost Viking game and got the gold achievement. Survived up to lvl 11 at which point I pretty much gave up with no more bombs to use and it was almost impossible to avoid the splash of the scourge. It's kinda amazing how long it takes to even get close to 500k, over 45min easy and it gets a lot harder. It's even, dare I say it, more intense than some of the SCII matches I've had XD

For those who are interested in trying to get this achievement, I'll give a couple of tips(*ahem* Calm *ahem*):

1. During all the levels, having the missile weapon is a much better idea than the plasma due to its splash if u wanna call it that. Much easier to kill all the different enemies aside from the mini bosses(phenoixes/swarm guardians, bcs, etc....). The plasma is only useful for the bosses since its a concentrated attack(mostly terra-tron, better to use missile for carrier(due to interceptors)/leviathan(since you'll need it in the next level)).
2. Save as many bombs as possible. When you are fighting in the Zerg level and shooting all those scourages, you'll find that you are going to be surrounded by their green globs and maneuvering through them without dying is almost impossible. Use a bomb then, same when you find that you can't escape death because you are pined or about to be hit by some weapon from any unit.
3. Always try to get to the max upgrade of your weapon(2 or 3 for missile, 1 for plasma).
4. Always get drones because they are amazing at helping with shots and taking one for the team.
5. If you see a floating upgrade or whatever you want to call it, wait until it changes to an upgrade you want and make sure to snatch it then if you can otherwise it's not always worth the risk.
6. Be patient in the game. I didn't get to 125k, 250k and 500k in the same day. Once I got 125k, I was able to get 250k and then 500k the next day. It takes a lot of time so make sure to budget your time wisely(don't start if you don't have time since you can't save) and try to take out as many units as possible in the earlier levels because it gets harder to do so later on.
6. Most important, SPAM spacebar. Don't just keep your hand on it, keep pressing it because it fires faster this way
Enjoy!

Of course, it's hax. I mean playing LV for a couple of hours a day for 2 days, spamming like a madmen and almost being driven to insanity is hax, no?

Thanks, I put in the time/effort and it paid off. Those tips I wrote were actually targetted at you You're pretty close to 250k. Just work on timings(when to use bomb, what upgrades are important first, etc....), maneuvering and being efficient(hitting as many targets as possible) and you should be able to hit 250k easily. Once I hit 125k, I hit 250k in the next game, but, 500k is the hard one. It took maybe 5-6 games, very intense ones might I add to get 500k, closest before was 471k
