Is this possible in this game or not?

You can make a tanky wp, sure. But without guard and hold the line i doubt you would be much help in warband size gameplay.

The question to ask is: what for? Why you're standing in focus of whole warbands?

Tanks can answer this question, a WP probably cannot.

You may probably get 70-80% damage mitigation and some block but you don’t have abilities that help you to avoid being hit. And medium robe does not offer needed amount of armor so you won’t be able to tali roughness effectively.

But you can get relatively hard skin though.

With BiS gear and the Divine Warden & Sigmar's Vision buffs up you can get around 38-40% block & around 50% parry. And at the same time have up to 4k armor (with armor talis in almost all slots). So you can definitely get quite tanky.

But if you mean PvE tanking in a group you will have problems holding aggro. The DoK has access to more hate increase gear than the WP has, as DoK can use for example BG Swords with hate increase.

So, I righty understand — in PvE mr. Zigmarite cant be good tank at all, but in PvP it can be possible, or DoK (what is it DoK? Imperium Tanky class?) have special and more fit and good abilities for PvP too?

You can be pretty survivable in PvP as a WP, but you can't really fulfill the role of a tank as you don't have guard, challenge etc.

DoK is the Disciple of Khaine, the destruction mirror class to WP.

In terms of "shield WP", which is Grace spec, check the link in my signature for a guide.

Since WP has group heals, and a lot of AoE buffs, strapping in armour and adding a bit extra to the front is doable. A tanky WP is useful in order since they tend to get overpowered by large destro-melee zergs.

Shield WP should get "guard" ability instead of Sigmars Grace - that would totally change his tactical position in the team and give him more flavor
Karak Azgal - Haron WP
Karak Norn - Haeroon KoTBS
RoR - Morrguard Huss - sometimes healer
Nogrun - I love the smell of napalm in the morning
Chaeron - Bladesong dancer
Charonirae - a really bad Wh
