Perhaps you should make it a flat +4 or +6 bonus (considering everyone can wear a chain shirt) or his armor bonus (so +8 usually), whichever is higher to help in cases like that. Also his challenge has an unlimited range, so he could challenge whole armies
. I guess E6 Kratos dipped Sentinel.
I see your point on the sentinel, though I do want to encourage them to be the heavily-armored tank. Perhaps an additional bonus to the ally's armor class equal to the sentinel's BAB? That would make even a naked sentinel capable of protecting someone somewhat.
Challenge's range is an oversight on my part. Will fix. Should be 30'.
I'm envisioning the new sentinel as sort of a combat-oriented chessmaster, repositioning himself and allies to best defensive advantage while penalizing opponents for choosing targets other than himself.
