The only way I produced so many Lt Inf in that game with Ebbingford was by parking the sole leader with training ability (the Chevalier de Levis) in Montreal for nearly the entire game and having him do nothing but train up the militia. That alone acts as some kind of compensation - he's a very good leader whose abilities are effectively sacrificed to pull this off. On the other hand, I do agree with Ebbingford that this stratagem unbalances the game.
But what if Levis were only able to train up for part of the game? Say, for the first two years after arrival? The choice then becomes: gain some better quality troops or use Levis while the French still have the edge, but with a finite limit to his training ability. The French player then has to decide: benefit now (Levis in the field) or benefit later (more Lt Inf).
Of course, it would require some mod: two separate Levis models and events to switch them a la Prince Ferdinand in ROP or Sir Henry Clinton in BOA/AWI, I guess?
