Attached is a script I wrote several years ago that can set up one of four paths:
- a path consisting of shaped lines following an initial selection
- a path consisting of concentric circles filling the image
- a path made of horizontal lines
- a path made of vertical lines
using a specified spacing for the path lines.
It shows up under "Filters>Artistic>Mosaic Tile Helper"
The scipt will (optionally) stroke the path with the current pen, but this has limited value, as the tiles will all be one colour. It is best used be having it leave the path then using the stroke path command after setting up the active paintbrush to use the rotating tile set I provided earlier in the post, along with the "use gradient" colour option in the paintbrush.
Here are some samples (brush spacing increased so you see the dot of each brush):

I made this script to help with creating "fake mosaics", hence its name:
