i would say exactly what you have already said but adding "in earnest". the english very rarely throw or launch themselves.

Spain started the conquest in earnest.

I have found another one which I think is the best translation for this:

Spain embarked itself on the conquest.

In Spanish it means:

Spain started the conquest/launched the conquest/decided to ...

I am interested too how exactly one would say that in English.

the Spanish verb is "lanzar" used in its pronominal form.
