Ricky Lloyd was ordered to serve an additional year in prison after admitting a flat burglary in Bangor.
The court heard the robbery took place in April last year, when Bain posed as a friend of their victim, before his two disguised accomplices forced their way into the property.
Judge Niclas Parry said it had been a premeditated armed robbery involving a group attack on a man.
"Your victim was clubbed about the head twice with a weapon and left bleeding profusely, and while on the floor kicked to the back and the back of the head," said the judge.
The court heard that Terence Lloyd had previous convictions for 91 offences, including violence and burglary.
Ricky Lloyd also had a previous history of offending, relating to a lifestyle of drug use.
He was also on bail for other burglary and drug offences when the attack took place.
Senior investigating officer Det Con Arwel Jones said after the case: "This was a lengthy investigation.
"The residents of Bangor will be relieved that these three dangerous individuals will be off the streets for a considerable time."
