According to my knowledge, these terracotta warriors used to be painted with colorful pigments such as red, yellow, and purple. But now, those pigments were faded and it only looks drab.
The average height of these figures are around 1.75 meters with the highest over 2 meters.
You can find shops selling models of the terracotta warriors and the price varies a lot according to different sizes.
