I think it's because HexWar Games have moved to self-publishing. A lot of these were already available under Hunted Cow (I think that's the one) and now they've been re-released under their own studio. I've heard quite a few good things about them and because of the situation, there are normally reviews already out for them.

Actually these are not Hunted Cow games at all but a brand new series of games from Hexwar and the boardgame company, Decision Games. While the Hunted Cow Ancient games are good, this new partnership are producing an excellent product and I am looking forward to the future of the Hexwar, Decision Game Allliance....
