All in all an interesting addition to the PB family.
Just wished they had called it Rebels vs Yankees.

(apologies for some of the glare in the photos, but photography, especially using an i-phone isn't one of my strong points).

I ordered it from noble knight games in the USA. Only took a week to come and price including postage was equivalent to buying it locally (in Australia). Normally postage can be off putting when buying games from USA. But the compact size and weight of PB made it a good purchase. Being a PB fan helps.

I wish the armies had a few personalities like Lee, Grant, or Stonewall. And where is the "Rebel Yell" as a trait?

Small worries, though - the game is great!

I don't. I prefer the armies to be anonymous, since it goes hand in hand with the undetailed approach of the Pocket Battles family.

I was wondering which dice are on the other bushwalkers and volunteers?

There are 2/2 Bushwalkers and 5/5 Volunteers in the picture.

I guess 3/3 Bushwalkers and 3/3,4/4,5/5 Volunteers
