    Download the Portrait_Icon.mdx model attached below and open it with MDX Pather.

    You will see a window that looks like this:

    Replace the existing icon path with the path of your icon (if it's a custom icon, the custom icon has to already be imported into the map with that path in the Import Manager).

    to this:
    Save the changes; close MDX Pather and import the Portrait_Icon.mdx into your map.

    Change the path in the Import Manager from "war3mapImported\Portrait_Icon.mdx" to the path of the unit model and add "_Portrait" at the end of the name, before the ".mdx" file extension.

    For example if the path of the unit model is:
    then the portrait should have this path:
