The Firstborn were created during the Medusa V summer campaign back in 4th edition. They didn't have any special rules or anything, though at the time they did have a bunch of suggested Doctrines to make a flavorful Firstborn army. Other than the fancy models though, there's nothing to set them apart from any other Guard regiment (not counting the fluff).
