The permitted aesthetics for all of these items mentioned are those which can be held up to existing, canon examples of Mechs, Walkers, or War Droids.

Major Faction Wins Rebellion (Or no rebellion takes place within allotted time): The major faction may submit a unique SSD / Dreadnought.
Minor Faction Wins Rebellion: Provided the minor faction meets all requirements to go major, and they choose to do so, they may steal the dreadnought reward and submit their own
