I thought the idea was awesome and did my take of the Phyotmancer based on the Pinterest image he’d posted - i’ll be following up this mini with some plant modified undead throughout the week.
Couple additional thoughts:
The globes he carries are filled with necromantic-spores that he throws at recently raised undead to augment them with a variety of magical death-weeds that quickly over grow and enhance the rotten remains.
The bird was once a loyal familiar, but is now little more then a grisly puppet of a necrotic-weed that has taken root on the phytomancer’s shoulder pad.
Let me know what you think, cheers!
