This planet has so much hidden potential, if nothing more than as scrap to help grow our outpost. We went on an almost enjoyable excursion to the planet to attempt to collect air/soil samples and to capture as much local xeno fauna as possible. This should allow me to begin my work developing a virus to spread across the planet and rid it of the foul mutant that has taken hold. The samples collected should prove quite useful. You must always find joy in doing your part of ridding the universe of the impure. Emperor Bless this endeavor.
It is something to note that the final thief of medical supplies that escaped my punishment has apparently drawn the ire of the Emperor himself for his transgressions. He was one of the under-deck mutants who accompanied us on our journey to the surface and it seems his internal corruption has blossomed outward into a horrible twisting of flesh. I am pleased he is being taken care of by Mr Crabbe’s lash for the rest of his short and miserable existence.

As we approached the only remaining structures we detected some kind of automated signal and came in close to investigate. The structure that was emitting the signal seemed to be some kind of strategic command bunker. It appears the inhabitants of this world had the courtesy to cleanse their wicked taint in holy atomic fire. Just as my ancestors on Krieg needed to do, though none of these wretches were doing so for the pure motives of Colonel Jurten had in cleansing the vile heretics. All parties were unclean and received the fate t hey deserved. Still the Lord Captain seems pleased with the archeotech battle servitors we were able to recover, but those pale in comparison to the big find. We found the coordinates to some un-detonated archeotech Atomic Warheads. Such a fortuitous find, we now have some means to help us destroy the Cursed Wanderer. I am almost excited by the prospect of purging its taint.
Experimentation proceeds apace.

What a wretched place. I thought that decadent pleasure palace was bad enough, a gradual decay into open and blatant heresy but this place… this place… was far more insidious. It was dotted with research facilities that seemed to all feed into some kind of blasphemous device that the heretics were trying to use to create a warp incursion and allow free passage between the Warp and Real-Space. It seems like they may have even used this contraption to “pull” the Cursed Wanderer in to their system to heighten their terrible machines power.
While exploring the lower facility near this terrible machine I heard whispers and strange noises. Worried it may be some horrible Warpspawn roaming free I chased after it so that I might cleanse it. Nothing was found. I can only hope it was simply lingering Warp taint playing tricks on my mind and nothing more sinister. We collapsed one of the arms of the device so that it should not be accidentally engaged. The last thing this place needs is a fresh incursion.
I wish the Lord Captain had blessed the site with a cleansing blast from our lance battery but he felt the sabotage we staged on planet and leaving an anathema warning buoy was sufficient. Oh please Emperor let him be right.
As a final note: The lower facility that housed the nightmare machine was also bathed in higher than normal mundane radiation. I shall have to monitor the others for signs of its corrupting presence.
