Could deathworlds contain "safe-zones" that the Imperium would build military installations in?
Every whisper of the future from the Warp speaks of a hundred battles lost, a thousand lives devoured and a million enemies born. -- Inquisitor Lord Babel
most probably, on the jungle death worlds they would have to clear out large areas to build settlements and military installations, although they still wouldnt be very 'safe' from an off-worlders perspective. or like on Tallarn where the cities exsist underground that would be considered a safe zone.
the safe zone might not neccessarily just be a base or settlement it could be a grass land area on a predominantly jungle planet etc.

Yeah most planets have Imperial way stations or research centers on them,even if they're not fit for human habitation.These are safe spots I guess,at the very least they're less dangerous then the rest of the planet.
Not all worlds can have safe zones though... just look at Catachan - in the 2nd ed. IG codex, it talks of acidic moss that burns through walls and "creeping vines" that grow metres overnight and can crush a tank like an eggshell. The Catachans are constantly fighting against the jungle as they can't have any permanant buildings.
But even Catachan needs safe zones, otherwise, where do they... "reproduce"? They cant do it outside, they would be eaten, stung, crushed or something by somesort of lifeform.
Don't get me wrong, the Catachans DO have "safe zones" - they just aren't very effective or permanent.
there are always safe zones....some are not permanent and some arent very bloody safe :lol:
but they serve their purpose
