Grey Knights aren't corrupt. I assume by that you mean 'unbalanced', 'broken' or 'cheesy'.

Grey Knights are extremely powerful. You'll find it hard to beat them with only Fire Warriors, especially in micro-games. Ask in the Tau forum for tips vs Grey Knights, and play larger games so you can use more units.

If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

the incident i used was to show the force of just a few knights. i have played many high point battles but my enemy will take minimal troop and tons of deep striking fast attack knights to obliterate my squads in close combat

Ah, with you now.

You'll need to load up on anti-marine weapons then. Crisis Suits with Plasma Rifles and Missile-Launchers/Meltaguns are good bets. You might also consider using Devilfish to stop them assaulting you. There are two ways - either get inside the Devilfish and zoom off, or put the Devilfish in between your Fire Warriors and the Grey Knights, they can't charge though it.

As I say though, you're probably better off asking in the Tau forum. In fact, if you PM a mod they'll probably move this topic for you.
