Cheddar Marines, cheesing up a 2K list.

This coming 3 day weekend I've been invited to a game at s friend's place with his usual gaming group. These guys were the most excited to hear about Unbound Armies that I can think of and they really cheese it up something fierce. As an example, I know the Eldar player is bringing the following:

2 Avatars
2 Farseers on Jetbike
10 Warp Spiders
3 Wraith Lords
2 Wraith Knights

And I'm sure the Tau player will have a crap ton of Riptides and Broadsides. Typically, I do not design my army lists with the extreme end of winning in mind. I usually write my lists for fun and try to keep it fairly balanced or themed, but, I won't be able to survive the first couple of turns against something like Typhus, 150 Zombies, and 3 Helldrakes with my usual list writing. I'm the only Marine player that will show up and I know that the others will be Eldar, Tau, Chaos, Tyranids, Chaos/Daemons, and Tau/Eldar. With that in mind, I'm not sure which direction to take things in. My preliminary list looks like the following.

Sicarius
Tigurius
Cypher
Combat squad with Lasback
Scouts w/Telion
Stormtalon w/TLLC
Predator w/TLLC, LC sponsons, Chronus
2 KnightTitans
ADL w/Quadgun

And that's about it. I'm a little on the stumped side with this and wouldn't mind some input as to the direction I should take.

Well, if he's not bringing Fire Dragons in Wave Serpents, your Knights are pretty much in the clear. I guess the Warp Spiders could put on a few glances, or Wraithknights striking before you, but...

Thunderfire Cannons are your friend for clearing our Zombies, I think. Slow and Purposeful might even be more crippled by the burrowing rounds that trap them in difficult terrain!

Tigurius with Scrier's Gaze + Stormtalon should be able to put some hurt on Heldrakes--making sure to come in after the Heldrakes come on, zipping around to deal damage in rear arc AV10 if possible...
