I didn't even realize there was such a game that was released.  Neat.

 

First and foremost, trying searching for "Starcraft: The Board Game", as that will pull up more hits in Google.  I suspect it's the space causing an issue.  It was created by Fantasy Flight Games.  The Wikia fandom page about it has some info, as well as a few pics, but the best place to look for pictures would probably be on eBay, where several listings have some fairly decent photos on there.  ....Of unpainted minis, but still.

 

Thankfully, the game follows similar designs as the actual computer real time strategy game, so technically searching for the unit's name (say, for example, Terran Battlecruiser, Protoss Carrier, Zerg Mutalisk, etc) will hopefully pull up more info.  You'll want to look at just Starcraft (the first one), Starcraft: Brood Wars (expansion for first game), or Starcraft Remastered (a full HD remaster of the original game, that plays just like the original) as those will have the closest artwork - Starcraft II / Starcraft 2 / SCII / SC2 has a rather different look to it's art.

 

EDIT:

 

Spoiler

 

Can't resist adding this....  LIiiiive for the Swaaarrrrrrrm.

Isn't there already a Star Craft table top game called Warhammer 40k? LOL. 

There's no true Protoss equivalent, and the Zerg replacements are...  I dunno.  They're missing Hydralisks and Mutalisks.  Y'know, the friendly "I so want one as a pet" cute ones. ::P:

Well said! Ya i would imagine the eldar are the closes to the Protoss. It would be really nice to have 28mm scale protoss figures.

I have this game and it's expansion. I have not painted mine because the minis are tiny and have very little detail.

 

Game play is good if you like an always be attacking unit production game. Rule book is not exactly clear on the first read through. Bares a lot of similarity to the horus heresy game the FFG also did
