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.

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.

Whenever I play Unbound I take specifically the units that my buddy's have all bitched about being 'OP' or just generally too damned effective. To me, seeing two Knight Titans on the other side of the table would have me concerned something fierce and I love melting some armour.
I condone neferhet's suggestion, right up to using an Assassin. I've been having a blast with my Vindicare and Callidus models.
:shok: that is a fuck-ton of Lascannons.
Do you actually own that many Lascannon models? I would actually love to face this list. I'd likely lose, but it would be hella fun.
