comment Blocking outgoing connects with iptables
With Shorewall there are several files. Once you have defined your interfaces and policies most of the changes should be to the rules file. There are several optional configuration files for traffic shaping, specialized routing, and other features you likely don't need.

It has been a long time since I ran Bastille, and it covers different things than Shorewall. Shorewall is strictly about building firewalls. It has several configuration files with clear functions. Many are optional if you need the features. The available documentation makes it easy to get things right and understand what you have done.
