2015 edit: A revised version of this chart, with official, Blizzard-approved sizes that appeared in the StarCraft 2 Field Manual, can be found here.

Edit: Well, this is over a year old now. Here's a newer version with just the terran units, at a much more manageable filesize and with a few new faces, check it out. There are links in there to updated versions of the Zerg and Protoss charts as well!

(Basically) all of the units in Starcraft, to scale. As of Heart of the Swarm. The capital ships chart (including the Leviathan!) can be viewed here: xiaorobear.deviantart.com/art/…

Downloading the full size is a must! (Be warned, it's a 10MB image!)

There will be a complete Legacy of the Void overhaul, correcting inaccuracies and including a few more obscure units as well (cerebrates, drop pods, preservers, etc.), but, we'll all have to wait for Blizzard to finish the expansion first!

This is actually a very old version of the chart, with some outdated artwork. A new, Blizzard-approved version will be coming out with the Starcraft Field Manual in the Fall!

This is absolutely amazing, wonderfully done!  It'd be great if this was included with the game somehow, just as "by-the-way" reference material.  In other words, you should get Blizzard to pay you for it, you deserve it!  lol

Thanks so much! What I'd really like is if they just released their own chart, using the models they had in the cinematics. The work's already done on those!

Man. with the protoss shuttle that size, it's ridiculuous in starcraft one that it can only fit just four zealots inside. Rage

I really want to know how big is an Omegalisk :)

Adding cerebrates? That'll be a challenge, seeing how there's next to no information about their size or their appearance outside of game sprites.

It'll definitely be a guess. The only source I know of is a vague description of Zasz from the Starcraft: Queen of Blades novel, but it won't really be any worse of a guess than a unit like the Brutalisk, or the Void Ray, which are also based on practically nothing.

Are you going to add the Overmind? I'm interested to hear your estimate about its size.
xiaorobear's avatar
I will, but the size is going to be a huge huge guess. Should be a cool drawing, though.
dalubnie's avatar
From what I've seen in the UED cinematic, the Overmind is at least the size of your mothership.
xiaorobear's avatar
I agree! Though technically that's the 2nd Overmind, and we have no way of knowing if the two were the same size or not, but, whatever. It's not like there's going to be any new information being released on him.

I think the 2 Overminds have different size, because the 2nd hae only a few months of life, the 1st have a lot of millennia, in SC1 too we can see the model used is different (for the first was used the armored, for the second the normal)

Amazing! I love the way you do your concepts.. you mix the in game units with the official cinematics, the original concepts and even more amazing: the brood war in game models and concepts... Really impressive
