No its more like an halberd 

Han Chinese had both, you know :P. Attached pic is a Han period halberd - the normal Ji has a horizontal dagger-like blade, but this version has an axe blade.

Han Dynasty equipment progression, Western Han to Eastern Han. While drawn in cute anime style, the equipment in these artworks are VERY accurate. Illustrations courtesy of 防弹乳牛.

Progressively heavier armaments, from early Western Han (left) to mid-late Western Han (right), with a slight dose of imagination (i.e. I don't think a long halberd can be used together with a shield, unless it is a strapped shield that appeared during Eastern Han). Note the bronze and iron Pi(鈹) type spears.

Various equipment. Items of note:

1) Polearms at the top of the picture (from left to right: Sha-type spear, normal spear, Ji halberd, and axe-type halberd)

2) Gourang metal buckler in the warrior's hand.

3) Eastern Han Dynasty shield at the mid-left section of the picture.

4) Straight saber with knuckle-bowl hilt at the lower left section of the picture (Yes. Han Dynasty troops did use that)

5) The way sword scabbard is tied to the belt.

(late) Eastern Han-Three Kingdoms warrior.  Items of note:

1) upward-curving Ji halberd (bottom),

2) Very long, armor-piercing spearhead.

3) Sha (鎩) type "ranseur" polearm.

4) Axe.

5) collared armor with full sleeves + thigh armor.

6) Helmet constructed out of vertically arranged, riveted long narrow plates, instead of lamellar (i.e. laced) construction like Western Han period.

7) Shou Ji (手戟) or Short one-handed Ji halberd.

8) Archery bracer at the mid-right of the picture.

We have this in the mod?.

Xiongnu uses similar equipment?

I think I've seen 3D model of this helmet somewhere in the forum, but it's not implemented in the mod apparently?

 

No idea what armor Xiongnu would use, "possible" is all what I can say, given the similarities of Xiongnu & Xianbei weapons to Han Chinese one. Eastern Han-Jin Dynasty riveted helmet appears to be influenced by Central Asian design too. 

 

Xiongnu ought to be lighter and lesser armored than Han though.

 

 

As a side note, I am more concerned about the removal of non-historical items, rather than implementing more features. Is this non-historical helmet asset still used?

I can't tell, one could try the mod. :)

if it's still in use and no issue exists an issue has to be created here -> https://github.com/0ADMods/terra_magna/issues
