Description

The Warmahordes & GB World Team Championship is an independently run annual international teams tournament for the games of Warmahordes (created by Privateer Press) & Guild Ball (created by Steamforged Games). The WTC is run by an independent non-profit organisation operated by an elected committee.

The WTC is a tournament, open to any country that is home to an active Warmahordes/Guild Ball playing community and possesses a willingness to participate within the rules and spirit of the event. The WTC will be held in September each year with the potential to be held by various host nations from one year to the next.

The Charter for the WTC and the Committee that organises it may be downloaded here. This document explains how the Committee is elected and how important decisions about the WTC are made.

The current WTC Committee

Kim Pipers

Kim Pipers

Let me start by introducing myself! My name is Kim Pipers, I’m a husband to a lovely wife and a father to two children, which certainly require some amount of my attention J

As far as my hobby’s goes, this speak for itself, I spend a good amount of time mainly on Guild Ball. Both playing matches and organizing events/tournaments/leagues. For example being a major host/organizer in the successful launch of the first Guild Ball WTC 2017 together with the Warmahordes WTC 2017 I can see this as quite an achievement. So thanks to the committee for reaching out to me in the first place and entrusting me to co-host the WTC!

Steve Herck

Steve Herck

I’m Steve Herck, some of you call me “Shameless”. I’m 34 years old and have about 20 years of tabletop gaming experience. I first came in touch with the hobby during a school trip (whilst visiting a GW store in the UK) and immediately fell in love with it. Not only because of the game, but also because of its additional aspects (being social, painting, collecting, …).

I’m quite seasoned in hosting events within the local community and added the first edition of the Guild Ball WTC to my “track record”. As a person, I believe I/we can always do better, this also counts towards organizing events. Besides this, I truly enjoy helping out people. Somehow I have a more satisfied feeling when I know that people enjoyed one of “my/our” events rather than to participate in one myself. I also have a multicultural background, I was born and raised in Germany, living in Belgium now and I have both French and Ukrainian relatives.

Looking forward to bring you an awesome experience!

Myk Myers

Hi everyone, my name is Mike Myers 34 and blessed with a wonderful wife and son . I have been involved in wargaming since I was 7 playing Warhammer 40k. I drifted out of the hobby for about 10 years and rejoined as WMH MK2 became established.

I worked in my FLGS as a TO and over the last 5/6 years have run around 100 events for Guild Ball, X-Wing and WMH. I was lucky enough to joining the judge team for Guild Ball for the first GB WTC in 2017.

I am really excited to be part of the 2018 team and look forward to making this one of the best years ever.

I’m Tim Banky. I’ve attended the WTC as a Judge and as a Warmachine Team Captain and fell in love with the only event that truly brings so many communities from around the world together. I’ve been involved in aspects of the hobby for my entire life and am fortunate to work in the gaming industry. Locally, I help run Canada’s largest Warmachine and Guildball centric convention, the Southern Ontario Open, and am a passionate advocate for both games. I’m excited to help serve on this year’s committee and to help it be the well-organized and tightly run event we’ve all come to expect.

Tim Grubbert

Tim Grubbert

My name is Tim Grubbert as well, 35 years old and from Germany. I was part of last years WTC committee as well and stayed on board mostly to transport the lessons learned.

I have rather strong ties to the gaming industry in various aspects – be it painting, playing, running a Gaming Club, organizing tournaments, running a web community or as a consultant for companies. I am familiar with Guild Ball and Warmachine, even though I do not get to play very often any more, but switched to the organizational side nearly completely.

I have run several tournaments in various systems, including the infamous Heavy Metal Dayz since 2005. Together with my gaming club Headblast Oberhausen, we also hosted the German Championship in Guild Ball and set up the Page5 Streams. I look forward to make the WTC a great overall gaming experience.

  1. Hi, I’ve got a question – what is the approach on the decision-making process for WTC 2014? Since WTC 2013 was announced in June last year (and has been discussed for some time before that I assume), I think it’s quite a good time to raise this. How will decision be made on where the WTC 2014 will be held, who will be preparing the rulespack and so on?

  2. Good question Michal and thanks for your interest. Sorry for the delay, but a number of committee members, including myself, have been traveling. We have a document about this but it needs to be updated and posted, but I’m checking the details with the committee and will get back to you.

  3. It’s been 2 weeks, any news? I don’t mean to push, I’m just interested in the direction WTC is going.

  4. An announcement just went out seeking interested parties to host the 2014 event.

  5. This page has been updated by adding a link to the WTC Charter.
