It would not have been all that incredibly difficult to model them after real people... Just make a casting of the mans head, and presto... You have an exact likeness...

Now whether they did it that way or not is another matter...

So somebody got money for a 3D imaging technique to verify what the naked eye could already tell?

That those different soldiers are different?

First you need to be called a Doctor of something or at least the "expert" in a field and then find someone that has more money than they know what to do with.

Regardless of who they are based on, they are awesome to look at. Such an incredible amount of skill and patience to make these. Incredible.

It's fascinating so many ancient cultures from all over the world believed in an afterlife that you could take something with you.  Monotheism is so boring.

What if they are statues made from the alikeness of the fallen ones as commemorative process. It it was an important war they were simply heroes whose figures should have remained in time.
