Default 2k Army, Plays this weekend, advice requested

Ok, here's what I have so far an a basic blurb on my reasoning, please feel free to shake me free of any delusions I may have and offer your advice, here goes:


HQ:
Chapter Master (Joins with Terminators)
Upgrades: Relic Blade & Artificier Armor
(I like the O.B. and the weapons choice was similar to putting him in terminator armor with a PW, just a little cheaper)

Chaplain
Upgrades: Jump Pack
Will join with the Assault Squad to provide Fast Attack melee support.

Troops:
2 Full Tactical Squads
Upgrades: Powerfist and Meltabombs on both Seargents, both free flamers and free missile launchers. One squad will be in a Rhino, the other will split into combat squads. Flamer/SGT/3 normal marines will try and lay low to capture any objectives towards the end of the game, 4 Bolters and Missile will stand on home objective and toss off pot shots at any armor coming their way.

Scouts
Upgrades: Sniper Riflex4 Missile Launcherx1
lets me pick off IC or high Toughness units (I have the possibility of CAM/Demons/Nids as potential opponents) has missile launcher if there's nothing but vehicles in sight.

Elites:
Dread
Upgrades: TL Autocannons, Missile Launcher, Extra Armour
(Troubleshooting hot spots where needed)

Terminators
Upgrades: Land Raider Transport (extra Armor)
I dont know whether to make these Assault Terminators or not, I've been really burned the last few times I've put my assault terms in the field, was thinking about going normal StormBolter/PF with then all. But I think my new Land Raider will help me close the distance much better then Deepstrike&Run and much more accurately.

Fast Attack:
Assault Squad
Upgrades: None (see chaplain for tactics)

Landspeeders (3)
Upgrades: All have Heavy Bolter and an extra Multi-Melta.
Allows these to serve as anti Heavy infantry in a pinch but mostly I wanted to use them to hunt Armor. Pop it and then riddle the survivors with bolts.

Heavy Support:
Devastator Squad
Upgrades:
Plasma Cannon x1, Lascannonx1 Missile Launcher x2

Using these to hunt Armor, mostly.

Predator
Upgrades: Extra Armour, TL Las cannons
My one mobile piece of firepower, want to use this to either draw attention away from the Land Raider as it makes its approach, or take advantage of the Land Raider's distraction and take out some high value targets.



Adds up to right at 2k points.

Thoughts?
