To date I have 3 of the infantry battalions, the 7th, 9th and 10th, together with the rifle unit, a battalion of Royal Marines and some artillery. I recently finished a lancer cavalry unit which I'll post about next week. From what I can tell, the BAL tended to fight its battles without much Isabelino army support, so I'll need to bulk the force up to 8 infantry battalions and a full artillery compliment. With hindsight, I should have painted the artillery in uniforms that are a much darker blue; I might see if I can remedy this when I next paint some.

I blogged about the the FFL recently, so won't do so again here. I plan on raising 2 infantry battalions to start with (I have 1 and a bit), and some cavalry.
PS. I meant to post the grand total for the Isabelino army. It's 166 infantry and 12 artillery crew with 3 guns for the Spanish regulars; 126 infantry, 12 cavalry and 11 artillery crew and 3 guns for the 2 legions. I reckon that's just over half of what I want to do. And here's a taster of the BAL lancers:
