Default 1500p Tournament List

In a not too distant future, I'm going to play in Trondheims biggest tournament.
(Not too big actually, perhaps 10-15 players).
It is going over 4 rounds. And craftworld eldar is legal.
From what I know of the other armies, there will be (at least):
1x Witch Hunters (rhinorush)
1x Daemonhunters (All GK+Termies)
1x Eldar (wraithlord galore)
1x Black Templar (balanced)
1x Vanilla Marines (16 plasmacannons)
1x Imperial Guard (3 tanks, rest static infantry)
The rest I know little of, but there will be a majority of Marine players.

I'm thinking about copying the same list I used last year (I won that time).
But that was a 2000p game. This is only 1500.
So here is what I came up with to now.

HQ
Master, lightning claws, iron halo
Comm. squad 9xmarines, 2xflamers, 1xcompany champion
Land Raider

Elites
Dreadnought Lascannon
Dreadnought Lascannon
Terminatorsx5, 2x chainfist, 1xassaultcannon

Troops
6xMarines 1xplasma 1xlascannon
6xMarines 1xplasma 1xlascannon

Fast Attack
Bike squadx4+attack bike, terminator honors, power fist, multimelta, melta, plasma

1500p on the dot.
C&C is highly welcome.

if you changed the bikes to heavy option i might almost call this a TAU i mean Space Marine Mech army.

It's as always an interesting list. Your enemy is going to have to pick something to focus on. Depending how much anti armor he can throw at any 1 target it might go bad fast.

HQ: Ball park guess that's around 500 points a third of your army sitting in a tank praying to the emporer to make it's points back. The composition of the squad looks good. I don't know if the flamers are perfect but i just like plasma better than flamers that's me

Elites: Alot of points here probably close to another 500. Your terminator squad only has 1 assault cannons, if your putting this in a tournament i'd definately put a 2nd one in. Give the 2nd assault cannon to the 2nd chainfist guy.

I don't know if a double lascannon (long range) dreadnaughts is vital. I would rather see a Lascannon / ML dread and a assault cannon / fist + drop pod to put the fear in god of your enemy lines.

Troops: Min max las plas squads are always good. You only have 12 troops that i always feel are a crucial mainstay for any space marine army.

Fast attack: I'm a landspeeder guy, your a bike guy. I can deal with that. It's a relatively big squad definately a force to be awknowledged by your opponent... Interesting choice.

You have a 1/2 stationary / 1/2 walking army......

It's still a while until it starts
And I'm not chickening out, per se.
I don't have enough of the correct models to make my force good enough,
I lack a lot of heavies, and I'll also have to paint and base them before
the tournament starts.
So I'll go with my guard, since I'm almost finished with my force anyway,
and I'm most experienced with it.
But I'll let you know the results.
Thanks for the help anyways

*LOL* i'm short on painted heavy weapons on my IG army, and i'm short of painted models on my SMurf army. If we combined both our armies we'd have 1 army each *LOL*
