The Galactic Republic has been around for thousands of years. But the Trade Federation is looking to make a change. They want to leave and take some choice systems with them. The mass of their army is made up of droids, and that's what you get a preview of for the upcoming starter set for Star Wars: Legion. Let's take a look.
From the post:
The Galactic Republic has become ineffective, crippled by corruption and bureaucracy. The galaxy needs new leadership and—with the backing of commercial entities like the Trade Federation, the Techno Union, and the Retail Caucus—the Separatist Alliance is prepared to do whatever is necessary to seize power.
To that end, these influential organizations have pooled their resources to create a massive droid army capable of overcoming any foe with sheer numbers alone. Led by the nefarious cyborg General Grievous, this army poses a threat to any star system in the galaxy. Soon, you can mobilize your own legions of battle droids and begin a campaign against the Republic with the Clone Wars Core Setfor Star Wars™: Legion.
Within this Core Set, you’ll find the units that will form the cornerstone of your Separatist Alliance armies, including an unpainted, finely detailed General Grievous miniature ready to lead your forces into battle. Following Grievous into battle are eighteen unpainted B1 Battle Droid miniatures—enough for two full corps units—and a unit of two Droidekas represented on the field by two pairs of miniatures: one in their standard upright stance and another in the speedy wheel mode.
Join us today as we take a closer look at the Separatist units included in the Clone Wars Core Set for Star Wars: Legion!
