At the moment i have all the pokemon in my signiture but fear that its actually not good enough as they dont work a team

You still need to add two more Pokemon or we'll have to lock this =(. Even if you're unsure, our raters can help. It would be great if you could update it so we could help more =).
Why are the beautiful sick and divided like myself?

Well first off, you don't have Sand Stream, which pretty much would cripple a Sandstorm team without it. Your choices are pretty well limited here, having only Hippowdon and Tyranitar to choose from. I reccomend Hippowdon, as it has far better typing than its counterpart.

Hippowdon (Adamant, Leftovers)
Slack Off
*this is how I would use one, but you could also go for these movesets:

Attacking Hippowdon: (Adamant, Expert Belt or Life Orb)
Ice Fang/ Fire Fang (Depending on if you fear Grass types over other Ground)
Thunder Fang
Stone Edge
*this is generally inneffetive.

Curse lead Hippowdon:
Stealth Rock
Fire/Thunder Fang (Depending on which weakness you fear most)

I'd also substitute Ferrothorn for Cacturne (Modest or Adamant, Brightpowder)
Special Set:
Nasty Plot
Leech Seed/Giga Drain
Energy Ball/ Dark Pulse
Double Team/ Spikes

Physical Set:
Swords Dance
Needle Arm/ Seed Bomb
Sucker Punch
Spikes/ Double Team

And a type to round out your team: Lunatone or Solrock

Lunatone: (Modest, Zoom Lens)
Dream Eater
Ice Beam
Calm Mind

Solrock: (Adamant, Sitrus Berry)
Psych Up
Rock Slide/ Stone Edge

I wouldn't use the above Hippowdon sets; I'd pretty much go for this one:
-Stealth Rock
-Slack Off
-Ice Fang/Stone Edge/Roar
Nature: Impish/Careful
EVs: 252 HP/152 Def/104 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Sand Stream

Excadrill can work in the last slot:
-Rock Slide
-Rapid Spin/Return/Shadow Claw/X-Scissor
-Swords Dance
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Air Balloon
Ability: Sand Rush
