Can Someone Suggest A Way Of Creating And Animating A Tentacle Similar To Those Of The Tripods In 'war Of The Worlds'

I'm Using Maya 7.0

I guess I'll do the same process of "Ik Spline Spine":

1. Build a joint chain and apply IKSpline.
2. Create a cluster for each vertex of the spline
3. Set a locator or nurbs curve to control for these clusters

I guess I'd do like that, This way, you can set controls all along the limbs. Any other suggestions?
