Looking to find a sci fi trilogy i read years ago but can't remember title, author or even character names.

The main character starts off as being a soldier on a distant desert planet being whipped for some crime. As the story goes on it says he lost an arm fighting against a creature. I think it might be as he's being punished the creatures attacked his camp?

Later in the trilogy he's fighting for an empire as a sargaent where the enemy has leaders that have a higher amount of metal coils on their head (I'm thinking of dreadlocks?) or similar depending on their rank.

Hoping someone can help me out!

    At the least, clarify "years ago". That could be 2 to 50 :) – JohnP Apr 4 '18 at 15:20
