Amazing High Elf General Miniature

More incredible painting by Jose, not a Warhammer Fantasy miniature but certainly an example that you can use for inspiration.

I'm going to let these pics speak for themselves (I often say that and then add loads of my own comments !)

Anyway, even though this is a 54mm model it still makes me want to pull out my paint brushes and call in sick for the day - although I am suffering from err... "painters block" at the moment.

The miniature is called Ithramir and on first inspection it looks very much like it's by the same sculptors (Andrea Miniatures) who made Varathar, the Dark Elf General / Lord. However, in actual fact it isn't - much to my surprise. This is a "Green" painted brilliantly by JMPN (Jose) ( nickname) and sculpted by someone named Freeman. The miniature won a Golden Demon - personally, I'd give it some kind of lifetime "beat this is you can" award !

This guy has definitely seen some hard combat. He clearly maintains that High Elf royalty-like nobility but check out the slightly faded, dusty barding and cloak and the less than shimmering armour. This guy looks like a veteran of many battles to me and, frankly, not to be messed with by anyone less than Malekith !  If I was riding into a fantasy battle I'd like this guy by my side or Gandalf !

Note also, the attention to fine detail on the base - the foliage looks real, not modeled.

Miniature photos used with Jose's very kind permission. Thanks very much Jose.


  1. Really awesome figure. The painting is extreme. Extreme beyond believe

  2. Yep, can't disagree with that Yur it's another example of some extreme quality from Jose.

  3. Where is this model from? You just about did it justice.

  4. Hi Anon,

    It's actually a "green" (that is, an original sculpt) so the miniature itself might not even be in production. Try asking Jose the painter (JMPN on, he might be able to point you in the right direction.

    Good luck,
