Not many details about the show have not been revealed yet, which has provided fans with the opportunity to imagine what the storyline can be. All we know so far is that Cavill will be executive producing and acting in the project. While the plot is as yet unknown, here is a suggestion that will work if the show makers are looking for it to last in the long run.
Suggested plot for Henry Cavill starrer Warhammer 40K
There are a lot of of iterations for this amazing game that can come in handy for a blockbuster storyline. But according to Antony Terence from Escapist Magazine, the spinoff of the game Dawn of War and Dawn of War II can be perfect for the storyline of the first installment of the show. The first game tells the story of trickery among many groups, each with special abilities and weapons to level the field of battle. However, it will require tons of CGI effects and a challenge Henry Cavill to turn himself into the godlike character of the game.

On the other hand, if the makers go for Dawn of War II, it would fit in with a few heroes sharing the spotlight excellently. As unit numbers have decreased and base construction is no longer necessary, Space Marines may now demonstrate their actual stopping power. Themes like empire and religion along with stories of betrayals and unrealistic aspirations make up the brilliant storyline for Warhammer 40K. It will be a spine-chilling experience for those who have played the game before.
Although Amazon Prime will be producing the show, Cavill will also serve as an executive producer. Everybody is familiar with his love for games, which is why he got the role in The Witcher. The 39-year-old can turn into a nerd in a few seconds when it comes to gaming.
