Slaanesh Possessed Marine (or Sorcerer?)

Hot on the heels of the bloodletter possessed marine, this chaos devotee has allowed himself to be possessed by a Slaaneshi villain. I'm not quite sure whether it is a daemonette, or something more sinister, but it is very Slaaneshi!

The bits consist of a back-2-basix resin base on top of which I've attached a Dark Angels veteran body (with imperial iconography scrubbed away). The back pack comes from the possessed chaos space marine kit. The marine's right arm is a regular chaos marine arm, but cut off at the hand. Pinned to the stub of the wrist is a daemonette banner hand and icon. Meanwhile the left arm is a standard possessed marine arm - chosen to be the clawed arm to be suggestive of Slaanesh once more. The shoulder pads are just standard chaos space marine ones (the right pad being the aspiring champion shoulder pad of Slaanesh). The head is taken from the daemonettes plastic boxed set -- it is actually the instrument! The excessively long tongue on it immediately cried out to be used as a Slaaneshi head when I first saw the daemonette sprue, and I've been wanting to use it as such ever since.

The marine could be used in a number of roles, much like the bloodletter possessed one. I'm thinking not only a standard possessed marine (with icon?), but also a chaos lord or a chaos sorcerer of Slaanesh with the Lash of Submission psyker ability (where the icon will be a force weapon).
