Make object follow a path or mask?

I have the following object/pictures of two arrows that I would like to have rotate, in such way that the arrows move and follow each other as they rotate. So it shouldn't be a circular rotation of the full image. I think it's easiest to create one arrow first, animate this and edit the other one in. But how to achieve this?

If you're willing to drop $20, this new AE script can help achieve what you are looking to do I think. You could also do it manually by making the line a stroke and use trim paths to animate it. Then keyframe the arrowhead to move along with it. You might also have to animate a track matte to get the end of your line slanted the way it is.
