We discuss the emergence and manipulation of generalised Dirac cones in the subradiant collective modes of quantum metasurfaces. We consider a collection of single quantum emitters arranged in a honeycomb lattice with subwavelength periodicity. While conventional honeycomb quantum metasurfaces host bound modes that display Dirac cones at the K and K' points, we show that introducing uniaxial anisotropy in the lattice results in modified dispersion relations. These include the tilting of Dirac cones, which changes the local density of states at the Dirac point from vanishing (type I) to diverging (types II and III), the emergence of semi-Dirac points, with linear and quadratic dispersions in orthogonal directions, and the anisotropic movement of Dirac cones away from the K and K' points. Such energy dispersions can modify substantially the dynamics of local probes, such as quantum emitters, to which they have been shown to induce anisotropic, power-law interactions
