Out of curiosity, what is the most frequently used figure size for the various rules played in Oz?

I think most in Melbourne play 15mm, but there are some who play 28mm.

Long Answer
It depends on region, and the ruleset. Nap is easily one of the more diverse rules period out there because it's been around the gaming scene for a very long time. It seems everyone has a Nap rule that is their personal fave, which may lead to multiple offerings to a newcomer to the scene.

Popular scales are 15/18mm and 28mm, which tends to conform to modern tastes. But it also has to do with what formation size you're after in Nap gaming - skirmish (Sharp Practice), battalion-level/brigade-level General de Brigade), division-level (Grand Battery), corps-level (Field of Glory Napoleonic), and so on. Other scales do exist (6mm for really large-scale games, 20mm and 25mm - old skool) but for tournament play, 15/18mm and 28mm rule.

Bear in mind that Nap rules these days are produced with that flexibility element - able to cater to different scales (basing requirements). But gamers -- being gamers -- will always modify any ruleset to suit their individual tastes and/or requirements.

Short Answer
Popular scales: 28mm and 15/18mm
