Elven Legacy has just been released by VP (thanks guys! :) ).

"Travel with us to the world of Illis, where elves, orcs, humans, undead, and dwarves vie for control. Are you an orc or an elf? Make your choice and embark on a thrilling, magic-filled single-player campaign reminiscent of the best epic fantasy fiction. Forbidden knowledge from the elves' distant past has been discovered and is threatening Illis' existence; the elves must stop it from being used and restore their race to its former glory in the process.
As you marshal your forces and prepare for war, you'll have access to a wide variety of units - there are over 100 types of them in the game - along with heroes who could tip the balance of power. Your choices along the way dictate which of the various endings are used when the campaign concludes. This is turn-based strategy gameplay at its most exotic.
A powerful built-in game editor lets you create new missions while multiplayer combat offers 16 scenarios where five playable factions vie for victory."

Sys requirements are: -

Mac OS 10.6.8
Intel 2.16Ghz
2GB RAM

Geforce: 8600/8800/9600/120/130 or newer
Radeon: 2600/4670/4850/4870 or newer

No, they use their own Deliver2Mac system.

The Europa III on http://store.steampo....com/app/25800/ isn't theirs?

HoI and Europa seem to be the only ones.

I don't think so. As far as I know, the only thing Steam-related VP has done is the authentication for Supreme Commander 2, but it's not actually Steamplay so it doesn't count.

These two really are the VP ports. I have HoI3, so I'm positive. I have no idea, though, why these two are the only VP ports on Steam. Not even the corresponding expansions made it.

You buy Supreme Commander 2 via Deliver2Mac but you install it on Steam. I presume its not steam play due to the $20 price difference between the Mac & PC versions.

So in answer, some (not sure if all) of their games run/install via Steam, but you can't buy them on Steam directly.

It's unlikely to be on steam. I was hoping that the HOI expansions would later come to steam as that's where I bought HOI for the Mac. Unfortunately that appears unlikely to ever happen so.. But whether buying from steam or VP directly it's still a good release :)
