I think by "second printing" he's talking about the the two different
package designs.  He made the things and was ready to sell them before he
got the art from Sergio that you see on the green packages.  So he put them
in some generic Dark Horse red packages.  That's all.  There is no
difference in the minis, just in the package.

Again, no differences.  The dog is Sage's Mulch, not Rufferto. The mini's
were produced before Rufferto came on the scene.  The "broken off thing" is
not broken off.  It's three different frets for the minstrels Mistrels
instrument (lyre?-I forget)
