This is one of ten pieces I did for the new Star Wars Essential Guide to Warfare. I had a blast working on it and I'm excited that I am able to contribute to the Star Wars universe.

I will be posting them in the order of sequence as it appears in the book. Hope you guys enjoy them!

This is the last piece from Warfare. The Hutts now maintain fleets of warships, shifting their philosophy of economic dominance to a more military one, ever since their Empire was almost destroyed by the Yuuzhan Vong invasions.

Everything in this is completely new and never-before-seen. I was given the honor of designing the various Hutt ships from scratch based on relatively vague descriptions from the novels. You can see 4 classes of warships in here; frigate, destroyer, transport/carrier and battle-cruiser and all of them have the distinctive red sails, which I took inspiration form Jabba's Sail Barge. Admiring his fleet is a Hutt commander and his cronies.

I hope this military resurgence changes the Hutts for the better. Instead of being criminals and scum, they will be warriors and kings! I can even see some Hutts getting fit and muscular and preferring to fight themselves rather than throw thugs at the enemy. They won't back down and would rather die than surrender!

How would the Hutt's fight though? Those tiny arms and their slug bodies don't make them the most well-rounded, physical combatants in the galaxy.

There are images of Hutt battle armor and there is an image of a Hutt warrior on Wookieepedia. You're right, though. I don't know how a warrior Hutt would be animated or puppeteered.
