Default Advice for modeling Chaos marine Lord

As the name states I need some advice for modeling my chaos lord on a bike.

so here's the skinny, I don't have a scanner to upload sketches or any progress shots of the model as I need help before I begin. Imagination is key (For now, pictures will be uploaded)

I'm modeling a slaanesh lord on a bike with a halberd style demon weapon. My main concern arises from the front and back end of the bike. The front end I have chosen to model as a demon torso with arms gripping the wheel and a gun barrel coming out from the mouth. The problem with the front end is I am using the bare torso front half of the new demon prince but I don't really have much to fill in the back. My abilities with green stuff are sub-par at the moment as I have not much practice and nil in the way of proper sculpting tools. I plan to run guitar wire cables from the ab muscles back into the main bike body but I didn't want to make the whole back of the demon cable as I feel it would lose its effect.

The problem with the back is I don't really have a clue what to do to give it that slaaneshy feel. All i've thought of is hanging some chains and meat hooks here and there.

If anyone is interested in the other components I will be using I've chosen the sculpted abs from the sanguinary guard model and one of their blades to service as the business end of my demon weapon (could also use some tips to slaanesh-ify this) The head is a forgeworld khorne terminator conversion piece (the bane lookin one).

Any advice would be most helpful! even ideas about components that may not have been mentioned! Thanks for your time

Now theres an idea that i hadn't really thought of, but i'd be concered with it looking a little hokey, I suppose the new demonettes are much easier to work with and do look much finer

Wings perhaps as a nod to the Emperor's Children heritage. I'm thinking of large wings, swept backwards, rising upwards. Or perhaps long flowing tentacles/tendrils trailing behnd the bike.

Really like the Daemonnettes idea if you could have them clinging to the bike with their claws out to decapitate people would work. Might be better to use the seeker models rather than the normal ones

I have a basic clay sculpting set I got from a art store. It's like 20 tools made from wood and metal. It costs like 20 bucks because I got the fancy one with a zip up case, you can get a set of plastic ones just like it loose for less.
